Was passiert, wenn in einem Schlachthof die EDV ausfllt? Nun, ein Stau!

Nach Auskunft von Konzernsprecher Dr. Andr Vielstdte konnten zwischen 4 und 10 Uhr weder ankommende noch ausfahrende Transporter abgefertigt werden.

For 38 terrifying minutes on Saturday, residents in Hawaii thought that they were all going to perish while Donald Trump continued playing his golf game. Hawaiians were alerted via an emergency warning of an incoming ballistic missile which stated that this is not a drill.  A second alert came in 38 minutes later saying that it was a false alarm. Screen captures were posted on Twitter.

The warning was also televised.

Children were placed in storm drains.

1788 - Convicts disembarked from their world trip cruise at Botany Bay, but they didn't get much sight-seeing done, for some reason...

The British Are Tweeting Hilarious Fake Reasons For Trump Canceling His London Trip (TWEETS) "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Trump Cancels London Trip

Donald Trump took to Twitter on Thursday, as he is known to do, but on this occasion it was to explain his reason for canceling his trip to London:

Many saw through his false pretenses, citing reasons such as the fact that the sale of US embassy was announced by the Bush administration in October 2008 a full three months before Barack Obama was elected and at a price approximately $200 million less than what Trump stated, claiming that even if the building were to undergo a seven-year, $550 million refurbishment, it still would be unable to meet security requirements.

We looked at all our options, including renovation of our current building on Grosvenor Square, said then-Ambassador Robert Tuttle in October, 2008. In the end, we realized that the goal of a modern, secure and environmentally sustainable embassy could best be met by constructing a new facility.

Furthermore, the current embassy was financed by the sale of the previous embassy, as well as the sale of two other State Department properties in London and was completed without exceeding the proposed budget. So, why did Trump really cancel his trip to London? Is it because that London Mayor Sadiq Khan has made it abundantly clear that Trump is not welcome in the city? Perhaps Trump just thinks hes already in Londo...

Mike Pence Rescues Iraqi Christians, 1977 "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

- Virtual Shield VPN - the easiest way to create a home VPN. Go to: Good morning, Im still reporting on: Mike Pence Rescues Iraqi Christians, 1977 Synopsis: According to the Washington Free Beacon, Vice President Mike Pence has caused State Department money to be shifted around to bring much-needed relief to persecuted Christians in the Iraqi city of Nineva after being devastated by the ISIS terror army. In an October speech, Pence promised that the administration would stop the State Departments ineffective relief efforts that gave all money to the U.N. to distribute in Iraq. The United States will work hand in hand from this day forward with faith-based groups and private organizations to help those who are persecuted for their faith. This is the moment, now is the time, and America will support these people in their hour of need. ISIS deci mated the Christian population in Iraq. There were 1.4 million Christians in Iraq. That has now dropped to below 250,000. The new money will go towards restoring basic services, such as water, electricity, sewage, health and education. The Knights of Columbus, one of the largest Catholic charities, has sent millions of dollars in donations to the Catholic archdiocese in Northern Iraq, one of the few groups on the ground providing relief to Christians and Yazidis and help to rebuild their homes.

Trump vs the 5th Grade Tattletales, 1976 "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

- Trade Genius Academy: Learn the safe, sure way to trade. Good evening, Im still reporting on: Synopsis:Democrats have completely lost touch with the concept of forgoing some possible small, short-term political gain at the expense of the welfare of the nation as a whole. Yes, even presidents talk the way President Trump reportedly talked in a small private meeting in the Oval office yesterday. President Obama used those exact words to describe some of the poorer nations of the world, however, that never made the huge splash in the news for two reasons; #1 Democrats were scared to death of besmirching the reputation of the leader of the evil empire; and #2, Republicans had sufficient respect for the office, despite it being inhabited by the evil emperor, that they kept such private conversations, private, for the benefit of the nation as a whole. Democrats had better wake up. They are so desperate to destroy President Trump that they will do anything, say anything, even divulge private conversations in the Oval Office during heated negotiations. Guess what? No more visits to the White House. But also guess what? We, the American people, see it. We know what you are doing, and one minor swear word is no surprise to anyone. And it dwindles to insignificance compared to the major turnarounds Trump has already achieved across the face of our government. What did you think about the 5th grade tattletale? You immediately shunned him. Here is just one tiny example of what we see. Trump has already made a HUGE difference for millions of wage-earning families across the nation, ALREADY!

The history of racism in rock and roll "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

It is well known that rock and roll originated in the black community but was coopted by white musicians like Elvis Presley and British groups like the Beatles and the Rolling Stones. Stereo Williams writes about the history of racism in rock and roll and says that there are many myths about it. In particular, he starts by closely examining the charges of racism against Presley supposedly based on something that he said.

His notorious quote (The only thing Negroes can do for me is buy my records and shine my shoes), solidified his villainy amongst black people. His is the legacy of cultural appropriation and white privilegemade doubly offensive by the fact that he was so dismissive and contemptuous of the black people from whom hed stolen rock n roll.

But Williams finds the story to be unsubstantiated.

At the time of the articles publication, Elvis Presley had never been to Boston. It was also alleged that hed said it on Edward R. Murrows Person to Person TV showbut he hadnt appeared there either. Louie Robinson, Jet magazines associate editor, tried tracing the actual origins of the quote and came up empty. So he tracked down Elvis himself, interviewing the singer in his Jailhouse Rock dressing room in the summer of 1957.

I never said anything like that, Elvis said at the time. And people who know me know I wouldnt have said it.

A lot of people seem to think I started this business, Elvis continued, regarding his King of Rock N Roll status and reputation. But rock n roll was here a long time before I came along. Nobody can sing that kind of music like colored people. Lets face it; I cant sing it like Fats Domino can. I know that. But I always liked that kind of music.

This article looks at the things about race that many famous rock stars have said and concludes:

These incidents are evidence of so much of the troubling heritage born of rock music as a genre rife with white privilege. It cant be separated from the genres historynot if youre having an honest conversation about that history. The quotes and lyrics range from well-intended-but-callous to careless to explicitly racist, the various musings of mostly wealthy white men whose success was directly related to their discovery and engagement in black art and experience, but who never invested in the reality behind that art and experience. The fact that Elvis Presley became the face of rock n roll racism is a sad sort of twisthes largely been vilified by a segment of the population for a quote that doesnt appear to be a...


SHOCK VIDEO: CHILDREN PLACED IN STORM DRAINS During Hawaii Ballistic Missile Warning "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

As TGPs Kristinn Taylor reported, the government of Hawaii scared the populace with a text message to cellphone users alerting them to an incoming ballistic missile. The alert was reportedly repeated on television broadcasts. It turned out to be be bogus.

Let me first make clear what I mean by the term dualism before moving on to describe and analyse its uses in politics and the media. The dualistic mode of thinking is a conceptual framework which divides practically everything in the world into two (polar) opposite positions or sides. Dualism is a simplistic and restricted intellectual framework in which important issues are presented as having only two basic alternatives things are either black or white, so to speak. The real world of colours, shades of grey or contradictions are excluded from discussions or assertions when they are governed by dualistic reasoning.  For example in religion, where dualisms abound, we find; God and the devil; good and bad; right and wrong, believer and heretic, Jew and Gentile, etc. In addition, the reader will note that within most religious and political dualistic frameworks one of these sides is generally designated as positive and the other side as negative.

Dualism also exists in a less problematic form in the common sense uses of concepts such as up and down; left and right, in and out etc., but these trivial everyday uses are not my concern.  The intention of this article is to point out how this form of crude reasoning is used for particular purposes and how it invariably fails to represent reality. In bourgeois and petite-bourgeois politics and soc...

Torture in Tayyip Erdogans Turkey: Amnesty finds evidence of torture including rape of detainees

10 August 2016

Amnesty International petitions against Turkeys post-coup crackdown on political dissent.

Petition Link: here.

There are well-founded fears for peoples rights and freedoms in Turkey, as a crackdown of exceptional proportions continues following the failed coup attempt on 15 July 2016.

At a time of great fear and uncertainty the government must not trample over peoples rights in the pursuit of justice.

Abuses that took place during the attempted coup must be investigated and perpetrators brought to justice, but human rights must be upheld not disregarded during this process.

The state of emergency does not override Turkeys obligations under international law and should not discard hard-won freedoms and safeguards.

Nobody can feel safe when human rights are not upheld.

Tell President Erdogan rights hard-won cannot be taken away, even during a state of emergency.

Turkish authorities must respect human rights as they carry out investigations, releasing people where there is no evidence of criminal acts and granting fair trials.

The prohibition of torture is absolute and can never be compromised or suspended. Amid torture allegations, independent monitors must be given access to detainees in all facilities. All detainees must have regular access to lawyers and family members.

The state of emergency must not be used as an excuse to crack down on peaceful dissenting voices or for widespread purges in civil society, media, the judiciary, education and other sections of society.

Censorship of media simply for criticising government policy is unlawful, even in a state of emergency.

Wolf discovered in northern Belgium, first time in over 100 years "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

A wild wolf has been found in the northern Belgian region of Flanders for the first time in more than a century, an environmental group said on Saturday (Jan 13). "Our country was the only one in continental Europe to have not been visited by a wolf," since the animal began recolonising the continent, Landschap said. Overhunting, industrialisation and urban sprawl progressively led to the disappearance of the wolf from most of Western Europe since the beginning of the 20th century. Since the Bern Convention of 1979, the wolf has gone from public enemy to a protected species as "a fundamental element of our natural European heritage". In some countries, like Romania and Poland where there have always been wolves, people adapt to treat an attack on sheep "like an accident, like a flock that falls into a ravine", says Farid Benhammou, a specialist on predators.


Threat message cancelled: U.S. Pacific Command has detected a missile threat to Hawaii, this is not a drill "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Residents ponder why such an alert would have been broadcast in the first place if there was no initial threat of an incoming missile to begin with

OAHU (INTELLIHUB) An emergency broadcast alert was sent out over the airwaves in Hawaii Saturday telling residents and tourists that the U.S. Pacific Command had detected a missile threat to Hawaii before the alert was retracted some 40-minutes later.

The alert was issued at 8 a.m. local time until 6:07 p.m.

The message from the Integrated Public Warning & Alert System stated:

The U.S. Pacific Command has detected a missile threat to Hawaii. A missile may impact on land or sea within minutes. THIS IS NOT A DRILL! If you are indoors, stay indoors. If you are outdoors, take immediate shelter in a building. If you are driving, pull safely to the side of the road and seek shelter and lay on the floor. We will announce when the threat has ended. THIS IS NOT A DRILL! Take immediate action measures.

Timothy Burke posted a video to Twitter which shows a soccer game being interrupted.

40-minutes later, the Hawaii Emergency Management Agency tweeted: No missile threat to Hawaii.

It is not yet known if the broadcast was accidental, a hack, or intentional nor is it known if a real threat was mitigated.

Once Again, Trump Nailed It=> Port-Au-Prince, Haiti: A City of Millions but Still Without a Sewer System "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

There are 987,000 people living in Port-Au-Prince and 2.6 million living in the metropolitan area.
The city does not have a sewer sytem.

Each night workers descend into manholes and remove raw human waste in buckets.

President Donald J. Trump suggested to lawmakers on Thursday that Haiti may be a sh*thole.

The lawmakers were outraged.
Maybe we should send them to Port-Au-Prince for a few weeks with a few buckets?

Via NPR:

Port-au-Prince is about the size of Chicago. But it doesnt have a sewer system. Its one of the largest cities in the world without one.

Thats a big problem, but never more so than during a time of cholera.

Since cholera was introduced into Haiti 18 months ago most likely by United Nations peacekeeping troops from Nepal, where the disease is endemic  more than a half-million people have gotten sick and at least 7,050 have died.

Public health authorities say cholera will stay in the environment for a long time, because Haiti has the worst sanitation in this hemisphere.

Its hard for Americans to imagine what this means.

The cumulative sewage of 3 million people flows through open ditches. It mixes with ubiquitous piles of garbage. Each night, an all-but-invisible army of workers called bayakou descend into man-sized holes with buckets to remove human waste from septic pits and latrines, then dump it into the canals that cut through the city.

Residents protest and disrupt Trumps speech to rural farmers in Tennessee "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Nashville, Tennessee.  Donald Trump, the 45th president of the United States visited the Gaylord Opryland Resort and Convention Center.  Trump was slated to speak at the American Farm Bureau Federations 99th Annual Convention.  He chose to belabor how fortunate rural farmers would be, now that he was taking steps to provide broader, faster internet coverage to rural America.  These words ring largely hollow in the wake of the death of net neutrality, which will almost certainly ensure further commodification of internet access and functionality.  Additionally, Trump regaled the audience with mendacious accounts of his accomplishments, stating, Were way ahead of schedule and unemployment is the lowest its ever been.  (Its not, and a collaborative study from Harvard and Princeton investigators revealed that most of the jobs created since 2005 are temporary, low-wage service jobs with little or no benefits).  He also touted that the, stock market is breaking new records ever day.  This simply underscores how committed his administration has been to creating wealth for the oligarchy, which translates into little or no benefit for the undercaste in America.

Recently, the [Vanuatu] government has taken steps to bring the projects many stakeholders into line, and to avoid letting the situation deteriorate any further.

Numerous sources with a clear insight into the project have expressed reservations concerning the contractors staffing, its technical skill and capacity, and the planning and coordination of the project.

More recently, drivers and property owners have raised a number of concerns about road safety, closures, new traffic flow requirements and repeated disruptions caused by ongoing work.

We sat with the members of the Design, Supervision and Capacity Development Team, who role is to bridge the gap between RMS and the Vanuatu Project Management Unit, who have overall administrative oversight of the project.

DOJ unseals indictment involving Uranium One scandal "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

The Department of Justice unsealed an 11-count indictment on Friday to a former DoD intelligence analyst-turned uranium transportation executive who stands accused of a bribery and money laundering scheme involving a Russian nuclear official connected to the Uranium One deal. 

The indictment corroborates a November report by The Hill that an FBI mole deeply embedded in the Russian uranium industry had gathered extensive evidence of the scheme.

Mark Lambert, 54, of Mount Airy, Maryland, was charged with one count of conspiracy to violate the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) and to commit wire fraud, seven counts of violating the FCPA, two counts of wire fraud and one count of international promotion money laundering.

The charges stem from an alleged scheme to bribe Vadim Mikerin, a Russian official at JSC Techsnabexport (TENEX), a subsidiary of Russias State Atomic Energy Corporation and the sole supplier and exporter of Russian Federation uranium and uranium enrichment services to nuclear power companies worldwide, in order to secure contracts with TENEX.

According to the indictment, beginning at least as early as 2009 and continuing until October 2014, Lambert conspired with others at Transportation Corporation A to make corrupt and fraudulent bribery and kickback payments to offshore bank accounts associated with shell companies, at the direction of, and for the benefit of, a Russian official, Vadim Mikerin, in order to secure improper business advantages and obtain and retain business with TENEX. DOJ

While the indictment lists Lamberts company as Transportation Corporation A, a simple search reveals that Lambert is the co-President of DAHER-TLI, the leading front end freight forwarding company dedicated to Nuclear Cargo, according to its website.

In 2012, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission sent a letter to Lambert with findings that TLI had exported plutonium in excess of the maximum quantity and type applied for and licensed, and exported Australian obligated material, which was not authorized under license conditions.

Prior to his 26 year tenure in the transportation industry 20 of which have been with TLI, Mr. Lambert was an Arabic Linguist for the Navy for five years, and a Senior...

SOTT FOCUS: The Solution to DACA is the Trbuchet Express "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Who could hate the Dreamers? With a name like that, you have to root for them. Therein lies the power of the left, freezing something and labeling it. Making it unassailable by semantic fiat. Like pro-choice, or income inequality, the name itself gives the veneer of moral force. The White House recently released a statement from the Trump Administration: President Donald J. Trump is grateful to Chairman [Bob] Goodlatte, Chairman [Mike] McCaul, Congressman [Raul] Labrador, and Congresswoman [Martha] McSally for introducing immigration legislation that would accomplish the President's core priorities for the American people. The President looks forward to advancing legislation that secures the border, ends chain migration, cancels the visa lottery, and addresses the status of the DACA population in a responsible fashion. How very obscure. Because Trump campaigned, at least implicitly, on the promise of ejecting all illegal immigrants and other undesirables from American society.


With Downsized DNA, Flowering Plants Took Over The World "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

When people consider evolutionary events related to the origin and diversification of new species and groups, they tend to emphasize novel adaptations specific genes giving rise to new, beneficial traits. But a growing body of research suggests that in some cases, that deciding factor may be something much more fundamental: size. In a paper published today in PLOS Biology, a pair of researchers studying the angiosperms, or flowering plants, has named genome size as the limiting constraint in their evolution.

The success of flowering plants, a group that includes everything from orchids and tulips to grasses and wheat, represents a long-standing puzzle for biologists. (In an 1879 letter to the renowned botanist Joseph Dalton Hooker, Charles Darwin called it an "abominable mystery.") Terrestrial plants first appeared nearly half a billion years ago, but flowering plants arose only in the past 100 million years, beginning in the Cretaceous period. Yet, once angiosperms emerged, their structural and functional diversity exploded far outpacing the diversification and spread of the other major plant groups, the gymnosperms (including conifers) and ferns.

Today, the 350,000 flowering-plant species, which have flourished in the vast majority of environments on Earth, constitute 90 percent of all plants on land. Since Darwin's time, biologists pursuing the answer to that abominable mystery have sought to explain how the flowering plants could possibly have achieved this level of dominance in such a relatively short time.

Perhaps the answer has been so elusive because those scientists have usually focused on the physiological traits that set the angiosperms apart from their relatives. In the PLOS Biology paper, however, Kevin Simonin, a plant biologist at San Francisco State University, and Adam Roddy, a postdoctoral fellow at Yale University, argue that it's the genome sizes underlying those individual adaptations that really matter.

Finally! A Transition to Cool/Moist La Nina Conditions in the Northwest "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

A warm front is moving through Washington State now, with a freezing level of around 8000 ft.   Rain is falling in the passes, and even the ever-positive Snoqualmie Summit snow report talks about " soft slop."

The last few days have been substantially warmer than normal , as shown by the observed temperatures at Stampede Pass (4000 ft) in the WA Cascades (normal highs and lows shown by purple and cyan).  Really warm today.
But I have some very good news for skiers and snow lovers: a major shift in the hemispheric flow patterns will result in much cooler/snowier conditions over the Northwest next week.  And much wetter over California.

Finally, we will see a more La Nina-like pattern, something that typically occurs in early January when a La Nina is in place, as it is this year.

Let me show you the upper level flow pattern for the next week, and for a change I will present the heights and winds at 300 hPa, roughly 30,000 ft:  the elevation where jets tend to fly and where the jet stream is often strongest.  Heights (like pressure) are shown in black and the wind speeds are color-shaded.  You can see the jet stream core by looking for the high speed areas (yellow and orange).

The jet stream is directly connected with temperature, with warmer temperatures to its south and cooler temperatures to the north.

Russian archaeologists discover new species of 10-ton, 40-foot dinosaur in Siberia "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

The fossilized remains of a previously unknown dinosaur which roamed the Earth 120 million years ago, offers scientists insight into the way our planet's animal life once looked like. A team of Tomsk State University paleontologists in Siberia, who unearthed the new genus of dinosaurs during excavations in a river bank at a village in West Siberia, the press service of the university said on Wednesday. "This is already the second kind of sauropod which has been given a scientific name in Russia and also one of the oldest forms of titanosaurs found in Asia. We called it Sibirotitan astrosacralis for its size and special bone structure," the announcement elaborated. Sibirotitans belong to a group of giant dinosaurs, or sauropods. Scientists say that they were not even the biggest in their group with a weight of about 10 tons and measuring around 12 meters (40 feet) in length.

Finland writes to 900,000 military reservists "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

The Finnish military has sent letters to the countrys 900,000 reservists and given them information about what their responsibilities would be in a crisis situation.

Finland has an 833 mile long border with Russia, which also makes the bulk of the European Unions border with the state.

The move comes amid escalated air exercises between Nato and Russian warplanes with reports that the two blocs are routinely testing each others borders in the Baltic and English channel.

A television announcement was also broadcast on Finnish channels reminding reservists that conscription is the cornerstone of Finlands defence capability.

Finlands defence minister, Carl Haglund of the liberal minority language Swedish Peoples Party, denied the communications campaign was related to the security situation with Russia.

The aim of this isnt to give out sort of message at all [to Russia], he said, according to Finnish public broadcaster YLE.

A spokesperson for the Finnish Defence Forces told the news channel the campaign had been two years in the making and that is had nothing to do with the security situation in the country.

The reservist letter is associated with our intention to develop communications with our reservists, and not the prevailing security situation, a spokesperson told the channel.

Finland is not a member of Nato.

The country has a small professional peacetime army but can call on a large reserve of conscripts in the event of a mobilization.

According to Andrej Illarionov, the Vladimir Putins chief economic adviser from 2000 to 2005, the Russian president believes that parts of Finland should rightfully be under Russian control.

The Russian government itself has not repeated such claims.

A new series of undercover video reports by Project Veritas, investigating wild and reckless mainstream media bias, suggests Twitter is ramping up development of a shadow banning system with algorithms that will filter out the shitty people and certain types of speech the social media bird doesnt like.

Yeah. Thats something were working on. Its something were working on. Were trying to get the shitty people to not show up. Its a product thing were working on right now.

Project Veritas full video report also features a clip with a Twitter software engineer who explains their shadow banning or ghost banning system, which is a well-known tactic employed by social media sites like Facebook, in an attempt to censor their user base. Watch:

For anyone who has been active on social media platforms, especially in the controversial field of trying to get the truth out, stories of being banned, posts disappearing, and selective censorship are nothing new. The only difference this year is that certain social media gatekeepers might genuinely believe they have been given some sort political mandate, or social license to carry out the routine task of shutting-up or disappearing political speech or challenging information which they believe is either fake news, or Russian propaganda.

8 Countries Are Preparing for War With Russia "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Russia continues to issue threats to countries on its borders most notably those with significant populations of ethnic Russians like Georgia and Ukraine which have already felt Moscows wrath in recent years.

But many European countries have reduced their spending in the decades since World War II, so preparing for a potential war with their aggressive and highly militarized neighbor is not as simple as giving their soldiers MREs, bullets, and marching orders.

And while the U.S. helps guarantee the security of NATO members, a recent analysis by the RAND Corporationindicates that many countries on the eastern front could be swallowed up long before American reinforcements could arrive. Some countries, like Estonia, could be conquered in as little as 60 hours, analysts say.

Global Warming Stirs the Methane Monster "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Its January, yet methane hydrates in the Arctic are growling like an incensed monster on a scorching hot mid-summer day. But, it is January; its winter, not July!

On January 1st Arctic methane at 2,764 ppb spiked upwards into the atmosphere, which, according to Arctic News: Was likely caused by methane hydrate destabilization in the sediments on the seafloor of the Arctic Ocean. (Source: Unfolding Arctic Catastrophe, Arctic News, January 2, 2018) Once again, with emphasis, its January; its winter, and theres little or no sunshine above the Arctic Circle. So, what gives? Why are alarming levels of methane spewing into the atmosphere in the dead of winter?

For starters, record low sea ice volume, which has been dropping like a leaden weight for years because of human-generated (anthropogenic) global warming. Thats a recipe for trouble, big time trouble as methane hydrates (lattices of ice that entrap methane molecules) get exposed to warmer water. In that regard, average sea ice volume throughout 2017 was at record lows.

Making matters worse yet, extraordinarily warm water currents flow into the Arctic from nearby ocean waters that have been absorbing 90% of global warming. Ergo, Arctic water in thin ice does not cool down without a lot of thick ice to melt the warm water currents. So, abnormally warm water remains into winter months and, in time, reaches sediments at the bottom of the ocean, disrupting methane hydrates, which have stored tonnes of methane over millennia. However, in due course, all hell breaks loose with large-scale methane eruptions, one of those Naw, it cant be happening moments.

Heres the problem: On average, sea surface temps were 23.35F warmer during the period October 1 to December 30, 2017 compared to the 30-year average temperature. On October 25th, the sea surface was as warm as 63.5F. For the Arctic, thats hot, not just warmer. And, that brings forth a big-gulp question: Whats going to happen in summertime when methane hydrates are more exposed?

After all, methane (CH4) is a dominating greenhouse gas that makes carbon dioxide (CO2) look like a piker during initial years and packs the walloping risk of runaway global warming, which, in turn, threatens agricultural sources of food not a good scenario. Imagine the chaos, considering the fact that runaway means totally out of control!

In all, an impending disaster seems destined to happen, but nobody knows when. It will likely occur unexpected by an ill advised, crass, blundering, philistine society blindsided by a scorched planet and extensive loss of foodstuff. Chaos spreads throughout when all of a sudden, unexpectedly, crops fail. One bad crop season follows another and another. For example, Syria, where its 2006-11 devastating drought caused 75% of Syrias farms to fail and 85% of livestock to die. Thats....

Newsbud Exclusive- Who Made Haiti a Shithole?? "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

On January 11 during a meeting on immigration, President Trump asked why America accepts immigrants from shithole countries. His remark was aimed at Haiti and Africa.

Although the remark resulted in widespread condemnation and a denial from the administration, Trump was correct about the conditions in Haiti and Africa despite the crudity of his commentary.

Left out of the discussion, however, are the reasons for deplorable conditions in these countries.

After Christopher Columbus discovered in 1492 what is today Haiti and the Dominican Republic, the island began its descent into misery. His sailors carried endemic Eurasian infectious diseases that wiped out thousands of natives.

A century later, the French imported slaves from Africa to work on sugarcane plantations. In Saint-Domingue, formerly Spains Santo Domingo, the French established a particularly brutal slave colony. One third of the slaves brought from Africa died within the first year from overwork and diseases such as smallpox and typhoid fever. By 1788, Haiti's population consisted of 25,000 whites, 22,000 free coloreds and 700,000 slaves.

Following the example of the French Revolution in 1789, free people of color in Saint-Domingue and the French West Indies demanded more civil liberties. These unfulfilled demands by self-liberated slaves resulted in a widespread revolt against the Spanish and French. This revoltthe largest slave uprising since Spartacus led an unsuccessful revolt against the Roman Republic nearly 1,900 years beforeled to the end of slavery in the colony.

The slave revolt forged a two-caste society in Haiti. Many of the wealthier mixed-race Haitians identified with the French and class division and tension resulted.



Roger Harrabin is Opinionated (shocker) "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

The Roger Harrabin

I like Alex Deane and trust his judgement on most things, so when I read this...

...I suspected that Alex might, most probably, have a point - especially given that it was the BBC's (environmental activist) environment analyst Roger Harrabin who was doing the reporting for the BBC here. 

Alex then added:
0.28%. Not the UK, the whole of Europe, 0.28%.  
Of course we should pollute less. But the way some environmentalists get the hair shirts out for us seems to ignore the facts.
And by "some environmentalists" he clearly included the BBC's Roger Harrabin.

Was he being fair to the BBC's very own Green Man here though? Was he unfairly doing down his own country to promote an environmentalist cause?

We can't all be perfect "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

One way of putting the BBCs political bias into perspective is to compare the BBCs overt Obama worship with the BBCs wall-to-wall anti-Trump narrative, which replaced it even before The Donald had won the presidency. I accept that a modicum of cynicism crept in towards the end of Obamas second term, so its possible that the more knee-jerk excesses of the BBCs Trump-bashing will abate one day.

Such hidebound attitudes obscure sensible reporting. It was bizarre to watch an Iranian delivering some home-truths on the state of his country, while the panel of western left-liberal commentators allowed their Trump-bashing to lead them up the cul de sac to a dead end which entails defending the Ayatollahs (Dateline) The ordinary Iranian-on-the-Tehran-omnibus, said he, has no beef with America or Israel. In other words, topple the theocracy and make Iran great again. Anyway, Im no expert on Irans internal dynamics so Ill leave it at that.

Over at The Conservative Woman (or Con Wom) Kathy Gyngell has written a fine piece about one of Trumps recent effronteries; cancelling his trip to London. 

Who can blame someone for not going where theyre not wanted? The BBC had been wasting its time trying to tease out the real reason behind Trumps decision when another bombshell hit the fan in the name of shit-hole. The new outrage subsumed the old outrage. Snub v shit-hole. Which is more Trumpish?

 Although it has been mildly amusing waiting to hear which BBC anchor would repeat the offending word - bonkers when you consider the language thats now virtually common currency on TV - this shit-storm, and the Toby Young one, forces one to ask oneself whether we really do need our leaders to occupy a particular sort of holy pedestal. Its bit like the Queen going to the toilet lavatory. She must, but wed rather she didnt.

Around 430 passengers were forced to stay a night aboard a local train stranded since Thursday evening due to heavy snowfall in Niigata on the Sea of Japan coast.

According to rescue workers, five of them a man in his 40s and four women in their teens and 20s felt unwell and the man was taken to a hospital. The train resumed service Friday morning about 15 hours after it was stranded, with many passengers exhausted after standing all night in crowded cars.

More than half of the passengers of the four-car train on the East Japan Railway Cos Shinetsu Line evacuated earlier in the morning with their families coming to pick them up by car.

While the operator said the trains interior lights and heating system worked properly, it only had one bathroom requiring users to wait in a long queue and toilet paper ran out, according to passengers. Some said they took turns sitting on seats during their prolonged stay.

Iranian Foreign Ministry rejects Trump's 'fixes' to nuclear deal, slams new sanctions "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

New sanctions imposed by Washington targeting Iranian businesses and officials are in violation of international law, and any "fixes" to the nuclear deal will be rejected, the Iranian Foreign Ministry said on Saturday. In a statement published by the state-run IRNA news agency, the ministry said that Tehran would not accept any changes to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), "neither at present nor in the future," emphasizing that it will "not take any measures beyond the commitments it has made" under the agreement. The targeting of one of the officials, judiciary chief Sadegh Amoli Larijani, "crossed the red line of international diplomacy and is against the basic principles of international law and a violation of bilateral and international commitments of the US" and would provoke a "fitting reaction"from Iran, the foreign ministry said in its statement. President Donald Trump on Friday announced that he would for the last time waive economic sanctions that were lifted under the nuclear deal, while warning Washington's European allies that the US would pull out of the accord if they did not fix its "terrible flaws." Specifically, Trump called for the removal of the so-called "sunset clauses," which allow Iran to gradually resume nuclear activities in the next decade. Trump's ultimatum was also paired with fresh sanctions against Iran for alleged human rights abuses and ballistic missile development. Under the new sanctions regime, the Treasury Department will target 14 officials, businessmen and companies from Iran, China and Malaysia, freezing any assets they have in the US.

Mr Trump had been expected to open the new American embassy in the capital but has scrapped the visit after clashing with the mayor of London and Theresa May.

Theresa May said that President Trumps retweets of anti-Muslim videos were the wrong thing to do

A Whitehall source told The Times that the decision came after the president was left smarting over rows including a rebuke from the prime minister when he appeared to endorse a far-right group. I dont think anyone believes this is an issue of policy or divergence between our countries, the source said.



Liberal Zionists cant talk about the shooting of Mohammed Tamimi "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

As everyone knows, 16-year-old Ahed Tamimi slapped a heavily-armed Israeli soldier occupying her property in Nabi Saleh on December 15, and was arrested a few days later. She has now spent over three weeks in prison.

What many people do not know is that Ahed Tamimis confrontation followed by hours the shooting by an Israeli soldier of her 15-year-old cousin, Mohammed Tamimi, in the head during a demonstration. The bullet entered his head under his nose and got lodged in his skull; a family member told Al Jazeera blood poured from his head like a fountain.

Last week Haaretz posted a moving video of an interview with Mohammed in which he states that he was going to a protest of Trumps Jerusalem announcement on his villages lands when he was shot by a soldier he did not see; that he underwent a six-hour operation and spent a week in a (medically-induced) coma; and that he cannot go out of the house for the next few months because he now lacks bone in part of his skull.

J Street has now posted two anguished blogposts on Ahed Tamimis slapping. Neither mentions the injuries to Ahed Tamimis cousin.

The head of J Street, Jeremy Ben-Ami, did a post on Ahed Tamimi in late December which while conflicted, seemed to express greater sympathy for the Israeli soldiers than for Ahed Tamimi:



ICE Detains Immigrant Rights Leader Ravi Ragbir, Sparks Manhattan Protests "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Hundreds of protesters gathered outside of an Immigration and Customs Enforcement detention center on the Lower West Side Thursday, chanting ICE out now and demanding to know the whereabouts of a prominent immigrant rights leader, just hours after two city councilmen were arrested during a similar protest in Foley Square. City councilmen Ydanis Rodriguez and Jumaane Williams were among 18 people who were arrested during the Foley Square protest sparked by the arrest of Ravi Ragbir, the executive director of the faith-based immigrant rights group New Sanctuary Coalition of New York City. Ragbir was detained when he showed up for a check-in with ICE, organizers of the rally said. Outside of the ICE building at 201 Varick St. Thursday night, former City Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito said she stands with Ragbir as well as her former colleagues who were arrested.

Dieser Artikel, "What really happened with Vista", hat ein paar Abstze ber die Schlangenlindustrie, die ich hier mal zitieren will:

In many cases, these security changes meant deep architectural changes were required to third party solutions. And most ecosystem vendors were not incented to invest heavily in their legacy apps. Some of these solutions took the unorthodox approach of modifying data structures and even instructions in the kernel in order to implement their functionality, bypassing APIs and multiprocessor locks that often caused havoc. Antivirus vendors were notorious for using this approach.

In my role as the head of Microsoft security, I personally spent many years explaining to antivirus vendors why we would no longer allow them to patch kernel instructions and data structures in memory, why this was a security risk, and why they needed to use approved APIs going forward, that we would no longer support their legacy apps with deep hooks in the Windows kernelthe same ones that hackers were using to attack consumer systems. Our friends, the antivirus vendors, turned around and sued us, claiming we were blocking their livelihood and abusing our monopoly power! With friends like that, who needs enemies? They just wanted their old solutions to keep working even if that meant reducing the security of our mutual customerthe very thing they were supposed to be improving.

Trumpy-The-Clown Speaks... All Gaslighting "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Thursday morning the obese occupant of the Oval Office waddled downstairs to meet with Rebecca Ballhaus, Michael C.

He had 3 minders with him: Hope "piece of ass" Hicks, Huckabee's unfortunate daughter and Gary Cohn. Some of Seor Trumpanzee's statements must have been worse than his "shithole" comments because they were off the record and not reported on (yet). One of the topics he babbled on about was the nature of the U.S.-U.K. relationship, which he said is not "permanent." (A couple of weeks ago he gave Prince Harry an ultimatum that he had to chose between Obama and Tumpanzee as wedding guests and Prince Harry ignored his childish bluster.)

Seor T was supposed to have visited London in February and he used the WSJ interview as a platform to announce he wouldn't be going because it would seem like he was blessing Obama's bad real estate deal-- which was a George W.

When New Guinea led the world in the shipment of air freight "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"


Junkers aircraft serviced the Lae- Bulolo route
A photo of a German Junkers aircraft that serviced the Lae-Bulolo route in the 1930s


BRISBANE Way back in 1931, Papua New Guinea set a world record in the amount of air cargo carried 2,607 passengers and 3,947 tonnes of freight.

The discovery of gold in the Bulolo Valley of New Guinea saw a rush of aircraft and pilots to Lae to service the goldfields equipment and supplies in, gold out and passengers both ways.

Supplies, which had previously been carried in by carriers at prohibitive cost, were now transported by aircraft.

In the first 12 months of operations they carried 250,000kg of cargo and hundreds of passengers, but this paled into insignificance when German Junkers transports were purchased by mining companies to transport dredges.

As the Australian Postal History website says, the all-metal Junkers with their corrugated fuselages were unlike anything previously seen in Australia, but they were superb aircraft - tough and powerful with lower maintenance requirements.

The Junkers pointed the way to the future in aircraft design, 60 flights a day landed at Wau airport, such were the number of airline companies and aircraft operating at this time, each Junkers made as many as five flights a day

In 1932, the Junkers transported a 1,100 tonne gold dredge to Bulolo, broken down into its component parts.

By 1933 Guinea Airways had carried some 7,000 tonnes of cargo, including drilling machinery, hydroelectric plant and additional dredges.

This airline was carrying quantities of freight far in excess of anything that would be seen until the major airlifts of World War II.

In the 12 months from February 1931, Guinea Airways carried 3,947 tonnes of freight and 2,607 passengers. This is an astonishing figure when put in perspective of comparison that the combined airline services of the UK, France and the USA were recorded as only carrying 2,670 tons of freight in the same period.

Easy Time-lapse Video via Phone and Command Line "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

A good time-lapse video can be useful visual documentation, and since [Tommy]s phone is the best camera he owns he created two simple shell scripts to grab time-lapse images and assemble them into a video. [Tommy]s work is just the glue between two other things: an app that turns the phone into an IP camera with a web server on the local network, and the ability to grab a still image from that server on demand.

The app he uses for his iPhone normally serves video but has an undocumented feature that allows single frames to be downloaded by adding /photo to the end of the URL, but the ability to get a still image is a common feature on IP camera apps for smartphones. His capture script (GitHub repository here) should therefore need only minor changes to work with just about any IP camera app.

Perching a phone over a workspace and using it to create a time-lapse with a couple of shell scripts is a great example of combining simple tools to get better functionality. It could be a good way to get additional use out of an older smartphone, too. Heck, even older dumbphones can still get some use out of them; Shmoocon 2017 brought us details on rolling your own 1G network.


Indigenous Woman Occupying WA State Capitol Lawn Arrested "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

In the pre-dawn hours of the fourth day of an indigenous-led occupation of the State Capitol grounds in Olympia, WA, one Native American woman was taken out of a tarpee (a contemporary teepee) and arrested by state patrol troopers, while 3 other occupants were allowed to leave. Indigenous leaders erected four of the tarpees on the State Capitol lawn early on Monday morning in anticipation of the opening of the State Legislature that same day. Their intention was to occupy the grounds to demand that treaties signed between the US government and the local Coast Salish Tribes be respected, and that the health of the Salish Sea be restored and protected. They demanded that the State deny any remaining permits to the LNG facility being illegally built by Puget Sound Energy at the Port of Tacoma on Puyallup Treaty lands; that WA State ban Atlantic salmon net pens, which are endangering local salmon populations already at high risk; and that the State do all it can to oppose the expansion of the TransMountain pipeline across the US/Canadian border, which would profoundly endanger the Salish Sea as well as the health and subsistence of First Nations in the Salish Sea.


Orangutans know herbal medicine "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Orangutans may have secret medical knowledge that most humans don't know about, after great apes were filmed turning plants into ointment to soothe their aches and pains. A study found the animals chewing plants into lather then using this paste on their limbs. The plants are also used by the orangutan's indigenous human neighbours in the forest. The bizarre discovery, spotted during more than 20,000 hours of filming by the Borneo Nature Foundation, has researchers wondering if apes may know of medicinal plants that could be used by humans. In the clips, apes were spotted using their own herbal medicines in the Sabangau Forest in Central Kalimantan, Indonesian Borneo.


A linguistically-convoluted post "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Kasra Naji

If you've been watching the BBC News Channel today you might have spotted Kasra Naji from the BBC Persian Service talking about Trump and Iran. 

Though he came across well, I was struck by just how linguistically convoluted he became when talking about Ayatollah Larijani, the hardline head of the judiciary in Iran. He could just have say that the hanging ayatollah has been "accused of human rights abuses" or that he is "seen as responsible for human rights abuses" or that he faces "allegations of human rights abuses"; but no, he had to double-up on the distancing language each time:
He's the head of the judiciary, accused of a whole range of allegations of human rights abuses, 
He's responsible or at least seen as responsible for allegations of human rights abuses 
It's probably a 'BBC Impartiality' thing.

That said, there was no linguistically convolution whatsoever from him when it came to choosing a term to describe the kind of people who think that the Iran nuclear deal is 'a bad thing': 
But obviously hardliners in the US and President Trump are unhappy with this and they want to get rid of it.
Still Kasra was otherwise quite impressive and offered an opinion that I didn't expect to hear from a BBC reporter in reference to the US sanctions on Ayatollah Larijani:
So in terms of Iranians hearing this, I would have thought it's a popular thing for the US to do.
I wonder if it is popular.


Iranian and Chinese commandos heading for stricken tanker "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Irans minister of cooperatives, labor and social welfare says Iranian and Chinese commandos are heading towards the area where an Iranian oil tanker caught fire and is still ablaze following a collision in the East China Sea.

Ali Rabiei, head of an ad hoc committee tasked with following up on the condition of the tanker and its crew, said on Saturday that the Iranian and Chinese commandos would reach the area on Sunday morning local time.

He added that many ambiguities surrounding the incident would be resolved after the arrival of the Iranian and Chinese teams.

Pointing to operations to extinguish the blaze, he said two Japanese fireboats had arrived in the region while Tokyo has announced that it would dispatch two more boats.

Iran has also hired three fireboats to put out the fire, Rabiei said, adding that they had been deployed in the area. Three other ships are also hired by Iran for logistic support, he said.

The top Chinese diplomat said his countrys salvage team would make its utmost effort to extinguish the blaze.


Swedish police detain 15 at neo-Nazi gathering in Gothenburg "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

15 people from the neo-Nazi organisation Nordic Resistance Movement (Nordiska Motstndsrrelsen, NMR) as well as two counter-demonstrators have been taken in by police in Gothenburg.

One counter-protestor was injured at the demonstration, for which police permission had not been given, reports TT.

We have taken the arrested individuals to the police station, police spokesperson Hans Lippens said.

NMR distributed leaflets and carried banners in various places around central Gothenburg on Saturday. Police moved to disperse the supporters of the neo-Nazi organisation, since it did not have permission to demonstrate.

They have disturbed public order, Lippens said.

The spokesperson confirmed that 15 individuals were detained, of which one was arrested for violent behaviour towards police. A counter-demonstrator was reportedly injured near the Gustav Adolfs torg square.

They said they were hit by [supporters of] NMR, so we will investigate it, Lippens said.

The condition of the injured person is unclear at the time of writing. An ambulance was reportedly called to the scene.

In the early hours of Saturday, police stopped a car after its passengers had hung a banner with a right-wing extremist message over the E20 motorway, TT reports.

Police were despatched after the banner was reported by other motorists.

A number of flares and fireworks were confiscated from the car, Lippens confirmed.

Four more cars were subsequently stopped by police and further items, including a knife, were confiscated.

In September last year, a large NMR march in Gothenburg required heavy police presence and ended in a number of arrests.

Challenging Trumps Ability To Launch Nuclear First Strike "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

WASHINGTON, D.C.  In a new open letter to members of Congress, seventeen former nuclear launch officers issue a grave warning regarding President Trumps unfettered access to nuclear weapons, declaring that the current U.S. nuclear launch process poses a clear and present danger to the country and the world: No one not the secretary of defense, not the attorney general, not Congress can veto that order. There are no reliable safeguards in place to contain this power. The letter comes on the heels of last weeks alarming tweets from President Trump in which he boasted about having a much bigger and more powerful nuclear button on his desk than North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.


Giza Pyramid mystery chamber may hold Pharaoh's 'throne of iron' made of meteorites "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

A huge void discovered inside the Great Pyramid of Giza in Egypt late last year may hold an iron throne carved from meteorites, according to new analysis of ancient religious texts. Giulio Magli, Director of the Department of Mathematics and Professor of Archaeoastronomy at the Politecnico di Milano, studied the Pyramid Texts, religious writings carved into pyramid walls around 2400 BC. Based on his studies, Magli proposes that it's possible the throne of Pharaoh Khufu - or 'Cheops' - lies inside the chamber. "Of course it would not be melted iron but meteoritic iron, that is, fallen from the sky in the form of iron meteorites and again cited in the Texts," Magli says in his paper.

ISP: Were Cooperating With Police Following Pirate IPTV Raid "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

This week, police forces around Europe took action against what is believed to be one of the worlds largest pirate IPTV networks.

The investigation, launched a year ago and coordinated by Europol, came to head on Tuesday when police carried out raids in Cyprus, Bulgaria, Greece, and the Netherlands. A fresh announcement from the crime-fighting group reveals the scale of the operation.

It was led by the Cypriot Police Intellectual Property Crime Unit, with the support of the Cybercrime Division of the Greek Police, the Dutch Fiscal Investigative and Intelligence Service (FIOD), the Cybercrime Unit of the Bulgarian Police, Europols Intellectual Property Crime Coordinated Coalition (IPC), and supported by members of the Audiovisual Anti-Piracy Alliance (AAPA).

In Cyprus, Bulgaria and Greece, 17 house searches were carried out. Three individuals aged 43, 44, and 53 were arrested in Cyprus and one was arrested in Bulgaria.

All stand accused of being involved in an international operation to illegally broadcast around 1,200 channels of pirated content to an estimated 500,000 subscribers. Some of the channels offered were illegally sourced from Sky UK, Bein Sports, Sky Italia, and Sky DE. On Thursday, the three individuals in Cyprus were remanded in custody for seven days.

The servers used to distribute the channels were shut down, and IP addresses hosted by a Dutch company were also deactivated thanks to the cooperation of the authorities of The Netherlands, Europol reports.

In Bulgaria, 84 servers and 70 satellite receivers were seized, with decoders, computers and accounting documents.

TorrentFreak was previously able to establish that Megabyte-Internet Ltd, an ISP located in the small Bulgarian town Petrich, was targeted by police. The provider went down on Tuesday but returned towards the end of the week. Responding to our earlier inquiries, the company told us more about the situation.

We are an ISP provider located in Petrich, Bulgaria. We are selling services to around 1,500 end-clients in the Petrich area and surrounding villages, a spokesperson explained.

Another part of our business is internet services like dedicated unmanaged servers, hosting, email servers, storage services, and VPNs etc.

The spokesperson added that some of Megabytes equipment is located at Telepoint, Bulgarias biggest datacenter, with connectivity to Petrich. During the raid the police seized the companys hardware to check for evidence of illegal activity.

Commentary: Why Pakistan continues to provide safe haven for the Afghan Taliban "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"


January 13, 2018

Suspension of military aid and other forms of US coercion are unlikely to get Pakistan to change its support for the Afghan Taliban and other radical groups, says the Brookings Institutions Vanda Felbab-Brown.

Pakistan has fought fierce campaigns against homegrown Islamist groups, and says it has lost thousands of lives and spent billions of dollars. (Photo: AFP/Aamir Qureshi)

WASHINGTON: The Trump Administrations decision to suspend military aid to Pakistan is one of the most significant US punitive actions against Pakistan since 2001.

The US has long been frustrated with Pakistans persistent acquiescence to safe havens for the Afghan Taliban and its branch in Pakistan both benefit more from misgovernance in Afghanistan, but Pakistans aid helps a lot.

Worse yet, Pakistan has provided direct military and intelligence aid to both groups, resulting in the deaths of US soldiers, Afghan security personnel and civilians, and significant destabilisation in Afghanistan.


Pakistan has long been a difficult and disruptive neighbour to Afghanistan, hoping to limit Indias influence there, and cultivating radical groups within Afghanistan as proxies. It has augmented Afghanistans instability by providing intelligence, weapons and protection to the Afghan Taliban and the Haqqani network.

Why does Pakistan act this way? It fears an unstable Afghanistan that becomes a safe haven for anti-Pakistan militant groups and a dangerous playground for outside powers, even though this has already happened.....


The Persecution of Julian Assange "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

I am delighted that Facebook is cutting back on its news feed "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

A few points:

1. Facebook can now claim it is truly addressing the problems (way exaggerated in my opinion) associated with the 2016 election.  This looks decisive, and the company can present it as a turning point.

2. In essence, they are blaming the media, without having to throw the stones themselves.  Americans respond positively to attacks on the media, so this is a strong public relations move.  Facebook retains the option of blaming the media more explicitly for its previous troubles, if need be.

3. The news feed can always be reintroduced under another name or guise.  Two years from now, the entire dialogue about the major web companies is likely to be different, one way or another.

4. I do understand this may devastate some marginal media outlets, and in fact many media outlets are marginal these days in economic terms.  Still, in the longer run I prefer a scenario where other web sites try to compete with Facebook rather than being co-opted by it and dependent on it.

5. Does this mean more ads will turn up on Instagram, chat apps, Facebook Messenger, and other Facebook services?

There is also this angle (NYT, speculative):

Facebooks pulling back from the news which necessarily depends on conflict and elevation of homier material may bolster the companys attempt to enter China, where it has been met with stiff resistance.

Facebook is just desperate to get into China, and it will never do that unless it censors news and this is actually a neat solution to that, Mr. Weisberg, the Slate chairman, said. If you only have news on the platform shared by users, users who live under repressive regimes dont have access to real news and cant share it, because its legally prohibited.

Im not entirely happy about this last factor, but I also dont see how it is better for China for Facebook to remain permanently outside the country.  And if the desire to enter China makes Facebook in some way worse for Americans, that is a potential problem, but I dont see how this move makes the overall media environment worse for Americans.

Dems used Trump's "shithole" comment to derail amnesty talks - because Trump axed their bad proposals "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

President Donald Trump shot down an amnesty plan offered by Democratic Sen. Dick Durbin and several GOP Senators, prompting amnesty-advocates to wreck the amnesty talks by leaking Trump's Oval Office "sh*thole" description of undeveloped countries. The report said: President Trump grew frustrated with lawmakers Thursday in the Oval Office when they floated restoring protections for immigrants from Haiti, El Salvador and African countries as part of a bipartisan immigration deal, according to two people briefed on the meeting. "Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?" Trump said, according to these people, referring to African countries and Haiti. He then suggested that the United States should instead bring more people from countries like Norway, whose prime minister he met yesterday. The comments left lawmakers taken aback, according to people familiar with their reactions. Sens. Lindsey O. Graham (R-S.C.) and Richard J. Durbin (D-Ill.) proposed cutting the visa lottery program by 50 percent and then prioritizing countries already in the system, a White House official said. The amnesty-plus plan was developed by Durbin and several pro-amnesty GOP Senators, including Sen. Cory Gardner from Colorado. The plan would provide an unpopular amnesty to more than one million illegals, preserve future chain-migration and also provide an amnesty to the illegal-immigrant parents who brought their children - dubbed 'dreamers' by Democrats - to the United States.

Twitter and Facebook have taken every precaution to avoid the label "media company" or "content provider." Instead, they both assert that they are "platforms," but why the distinction? Both companies project a vision that they should be viewed as open and free spaces for people to express their views and that only the most dangerous voices should be culled. This perspective colors the social media giants as little more than global-scale forums for which the owner has no responsibility or say on its content. Nothing could be further from the truth.


What has Quantitative Easing wrought? "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

The Great Recession began in 2007. It didn't take long for the money managers to recognize its severity, and that a little tinkering with interest rates would not suffice in dealing with the economic downturn. In Dec. 2008, the first of four Quantitative Easing programs began which did not end until Dec. 18, 2013. Some very serious consequences of this policy of unprecedented credit creation have set the stage for a major monetary reform of the fiat dollar system. The dollar's status as the reserve currency of the world will continue to be undermined. This is not a minor matter. As our financial system unravels, the seriousness of it will become evident to all, as the need to pay for our extravagance becomes obvious. This will make the country much poorer, though the elite class that manages such affairs will suffer the least. By the time the QEs ended, the Central banks of the world had increased their balance sheet by $8.3 trillion, with only $2.1 trillion worth of GDP growth to show for it. This left $6.2 trillion of excess liquidity in the banking system that did not go where the economic planners had hoped. Central banks now own $9.7 trillion of negative interest yielding bonds. The financial system has been left with a bubble mania, financed by artificial credit and unsustainable debt. The national debt in 2007 was $8.9 trillion; today it's $20.5 trillion. Rising interest rates will come and that will be deadly for the economy and the Federal budget.

Russia deploying more S-400 air defense missile systems in the Crimea "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

A second unit equipped with the S-400 Triumph anti-aircraft system has assumed combat duty in Russias Crimean peninsula. As of now, the region is fully covered with the most advanced surface-to-air missile system.

The 12th Anti-Aircraft Missile Regiment, deployed on the Black Sea shoreline south of the city of Sevastopol, became fully operational on Saturday.

As of today, the whole air defense of Crimea is equipped with the most modern S-400 surface-to-air missile system unmatched in the world, the Air Force and Air Defense Fourth Army commander Lieutenant General Viktor Sevostyanov said during the regiment deployment ceremony.

Last year, the 18th Guard Anti-Aircraft Missile Sevastopol-Feodosia Regiment became the first unit in Crimea to receive the cutting-edge S-400 system. The 12th Anti-Aircraft Missile Regiment received the modern systems some time ago and the crews have been training to operate them. The detachment has been previously equipped with older, yet reliable, S-300 systems.

The S-400 Triumph anti-aircraft missile system can engage almost all existing targets, including the ones under development, the hypersonic ones. This system also reliably protects from ballistic targets. This complex has larger range; a large part of the Krasnodar region will be also shielded, Sevostyanov said.

The S-400 anti-aircraft system is designed to engage aerodynamic targets at a range of up to 400km and ballistic missiles up to 60km away. The system can use at least four interceptor missile types suited to different targets. An S-400 unit can engage up to 36 targets simultaneously.

The complex was adopted by the Russian military back in 2007 and began replacing older systems. Over the past five years, 16 anti-airc...

BadDay.mpg: One of the internet's first viral videos has a heck of a history "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

You've seen the video. Everyone on the internet has. A man sits in a cubicle and pounds his keyboard in frustration. A few seconds later, the Angry Man picks up the keyboard and swings it like a baseball bat at his screen-it's an old PC from the '90s, with a big CRT monitor-whacking it off the desk. A frightened coworker's head pops up over the cubicle wall, just in time to watch the Angry Man get up and kick the monitor across the floor. Cut to black. The clip began to circulate online, mostly via email, in 1997. Dubbed "badday.mpg," it's likely one of the first internet videos ever to go viral. Sometimes GIFs of it still float across Twitter and Facebook feeds. (Most memes barely have a shelf life of 20 minutes, let alone 20 years.) Beyond its impressive resilience, it's also unexpectedly significant as the prime mover of viral videos. In one clip, you can find everything that's now standard in the genre, like a Lumire brothers film for the internet age: the surveillance footage aesthetic, the sub-30-second runtime, the angry freakout in a typically staid setting, the unhinged destruction of property.


That Ol White Magic. "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

If you know who to credit, say so.

Mike Cernovich, nazi, is all concerned about nefarious black magic, in Hollywood of course. And elsewhere, I suppose. But he has the secret! White magic, its the only good magic.

Mike Cernovich, the self-appointed leader of a movement he calls the New Right and a promoter of the Pizzagate conspiracy theory, told viewers last night that he believed dark magic was to blame for what he claimed is rampant pedophilia among political, Hollywood and deep state elites.

In the middle of the stream, Cernovich went a tangent to discuss the magical forces he believes to be at work in the world, as well as his personal magical practice.

Everything I do is alchemy. Thats why I believe in magic. Not black magic, not the satanic magic that they practice in Hollywood and that the deep state practices and that the media practice. I believe in good magic, light magic, alchametic magic, Cernovich said. Alchametic magic is How do I create something out of nothing purely through manifesting my will through power and light, which is value. Thats white magic. Thats alchametic magic.

Okay, dude, alchametic is not a word. Alchemistic is a word. So, right from the start, youre making up words, pulling shit right outta your arse. As for creating something through manifesting your will through power and light, yeah, I hate to break this to you, but that doesnt mean one damn thing. It certainly doesnt have any value whatsoever, outside your own head. If your white magic is so grand, why does it have zero effect? Youre going to have to have something much more solid than power and light. I have power and light too, its called electricity. Wonderful stuff, that.

Cernovich went on to explain that he believed the turn of phrase emotional vampire, which refers to people that others perceive to be emotionally draining or unpleasant to those around them, is a form of black magic and that is the magic that is taught by our culture.

Whether you know it or not, youre practicing magic, Cernovich said, but youre practicing the dark, demonic magicthe parasitic magic.

Oh FFS. Yknow, Mike, some people are just plain assholes. Id think you, of all people, would know that. Assholes tend to accentuate the negative, true enough. Other people are assholes magnified, abusive, using, man...


Net Neutrality: Floor Vote Will Force Senators To Go On Record "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

The fight for a free and open Internet gained new hope this week as Senators met a critical threshold under the Congressional Review Act (CRA) to force a vote on last months rule change by the FCC. The Senate will vote within 60 legislative days on whether to vacate an FCC decision to scrap common carrier status and give full control of the Internet to the big telecoms. Internet support groups say the CRA holds out hope for the Internet to remain in the public domain, but in order to help see it through, constituents must contact their U.S. Senators and urge them to support the CRA to overturn the Net Neutrality vote. The Internet had been classified as a public utility under Title II of the Telecommunications Act of 1934 until the FCC voted 3-2 on December 14 to deregulate it. The FCC subsequently published new rules reclassifying it as an information service, so it could justify handing control of it to the telecoms.

The Alt Middle: How One Pennsylvania Community Found Its Bearings in the Trump Era "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

TITUSVILLE, PENNSYLVANIA Shoehorned between the state line and the Allegheny River in Pennsylvanias northwest corner, the city of Titusville is as red as America gets, a place where virtually every one of its 5,601 residents identified his or her race as white on the 2010 U.S. Census, and a few storefront windows, rather  bewilderingly, display Confederate flags and Trump: Make America Great Again campaign banners even now, more than a year after the 2016 presidential election.

Unsurprisingly, African-Americans across the state, if theyve heard of it at all, tend to view the bucolic enclave and its environs with some trepidation, peppering their goodbyes with so many warnings to be careful and be safe that black students enrolled at the University of Pittsburghs feeder campus in Titusville often joke that their parents think that Crawford County is a combat zone in Kabul or Fallujah.


Not just turning a blind eye

In all fairness, though, African-Americans seldom experience Titusvilles racial antagonisms as bodily violence, but rather as the gaping spiritual wound left by a battery of invectives, bullying, and profiling that locals often characterize as drive-bys. Still, it did not go unnoticed when both the frequency and intensity of these microaggressions began to escalate sharply in the days and weeks leading up to Election Day in 2016.

One black student complained that he was just minding his business at an off-campus hangout, the Sheetz convenience store when he was accosted by a white customer exhorting him to go back to Africa. In the same vein, a department store cashier demanded that a black student produce proof that he had the means to pay before ringing up the merchandise, and yet another insisted on rummaging through an African-American students backpack.

And in a  recent incident during homecoming weekend in October, Tyra Hollinger, who is African-American and the vice-president of the Black Student Union, was buying snacks at Sheetz when she and her friends were confronted by the driver of a pickup truck who proudly displayed a Confederate flag in his rear window. Revving his engine, and whooping and hollering, as Tyra recalled later, the young man glared menacingly and conspicuously at the women while they pumped gas, as though he were auditioning to play the role of skinhead in an American X sequel.

A private tour of the Hebron Heights winery "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

The authors of this post wished to remain anonymous beyond first names. They undertook their adventure with a new solidarity group, the Hebron Freedom Fund. Editor.

We, Leo and Molly, are a married couple from Europe. We were asked by YAS (Youth Against Settlements ) in Hebron to go to Hebron Heights Winery and take photos. What qualifies us is a special gift the local Palestinian activists and experienced international campaigners dont have: were good at playing callow tourists bright-eyed and bushy-tailed! (After all, thats exactly what one of us looks like.)

Our preparation for the job consisted of four steps:

1) Finding out as much about the winery on the internet as possible.

2) Making up an inconspicuous story that allows us to go there and to take a lot of photos: We are tourists who were invited to a Shabbat dinner by a religious/devout Jewish family and dont want to show up with empty hands.

3) Changing our clothing and equipment: Off with the keffiyeh, replace the map from BTselem and the Arabic dictionary with some propaganda from the settlers and a Hebrew dictionary. (With Leos white shirt and Mollys skirt we even looked closely enough like settlers for a few Palestinian kids to throw stones at us.)

4) Adapting our language: Only Arabs never Palestinians and so on. But not too perfect! We still are wide-eyed tourists, arent we?

Then the adventure begins.

Consistent with our story we take a few photos in front of the Tomb of the Patriarchs in Hebron and make our way to the winery from there. Its located in an industrial area directly behind the settlement of Kiryat Arba, which is adjacent to Hebron. And its in no way as fancy as their promotion homepages made us think. We pass a vacant army watchtower, pieces of waste land, a kind of car repair shop, completely wrecked cars and man-high hills of waste and rubble. Uphill from the Winery we see mobile homes and building activities. We wonder whether this officially is an expansion of Kiryat Arba or an outpost.



WILL TECHNOLOGY KILL US? "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"


The Digital Revolution along with nuclear weapons and artificial intelligence are examples of technology that can result in human extermination. The reports below from the London Telegraph illustrate how technology has become the Black Plague of today.

 The truth about Hard Suns solar apocalypse: just how scared should we be? 

 Tristram Fane Saunders 
7 JANUARY 2018 7:00AM

You might not have noticed it, but two years ago an event took place which might just have brought about the collapse of modern civilisation.
In July 2012, an enormous flare burst from the far side of the sun. Had it happened just one week earlier, it would have been pointing directly towards the Earth, causing the worst geomagnetic storm in over 400 years.
As Reuters reported at the time, the resulting magnetic disruption could have fried the worlds electricity grids and left hundreds of millions of customers without power for months or even years.
Next time, we might not be so lucky. A new BBC series, Hard Sun, imagines a similar solar phenomenon. Two London coppers (played by Jim Sturgess and Agyness Deyn) stumble across a USB drive containing a secret digital dossier, counting down towards an extinction level event in five years time.
In early episodes, there is some doubt about the cause Did it refer to a meteor, or a comet? one character asks but it doesnt take Scotland Yards finest to figure out the truth: the drama begins with the sight of giant flares leaping from the surface of the sun.

This isnt science fiction. This is the real world, the shows writer Neil Cross has said. But how plausible is it? Should we be concerned? And for those of us who dozed off in science at school, what exactly is a geomagnetic storm anyway?
The surface of the Sun is an incredibly dynamic place, says astrophysicist Dr Katie Mack. In an active phase, it can release bursts of plasma and radiation into space. If directed towards the earth, these eruptions (known as Coronal Mass Ejections, or CMEs), can disrupt the Earths magnetic fields in what we call a geomagnetic storm. Its a CME that we see in the opening moments of Hard Suns first episode.
It can be hugely disruptive if its very strong, Dr Mack explains. Sudden variations in the electromagnetic field can cause sparks to pass between electronic components, shorting out circuits. The biggest dangers would be to satellites (including the GPS system) and to the power grid on Earth.
The closest we have come to this kind of storm was the Carrington Event of 1859, named aft...

Zimbabwe the ivory case against Grace Mugabe mounts and the crocodile should know all about the smuggling networksbb "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Yet more grist to the mill. Im sure this is very plausible and if she is involved she should be prosecuted. But it is very, very timely and convenient for Mnangagwa. Having been accused by a Chinese national, caught in Zimbabwe in 2009 with rhino horn, of being involved in the rhino horn trade, he is distancing himself and trying to make him and his family seem guardians of wildlife. He praised conservation at a recent visit to Zimparks and his daughter joined an anti-poaching unit. Great contrast with the accusations against Grace Mugabe. And a charge that is believable and will go down well in the West with the current ivory ban campaigns. Never underestimate him. KS

Book Review: Announcing the Death of Classical Liberalism "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Patrick Deneen's new book, out today, plays mortician for one of America's most popular ideologies. Notre Dame professor Patrick Deneen has written a book vitally important for understanding the present crisis in Western politics. If this work had appeared two or three years ago, it still would have been of great significance, but coming as it does in the wake of Brexit, Trump, and other shocks to the liberal consensus, its relevance is further enhanced. But a warning is in order: American conservatives may be cheered by the appearance of a book entitled "Why Liberalism Failed." But, in the sense in which Deneen is using "liberalism," most American conservatives are actually liberals. Deneen's use is in fact the one common among political theorists, many of whom argue that America does not have a conservative and a liberal party. Rather, it has a right-liberal party, focused on free markets and free trade, and a left-liberal party, focused on social issues. The United States, according to this view, has never had a "church and throne" conservative party such as those seen in many European countries.

Atlantic Coast Pipeline Hits More Delays In North Carolina "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Orifice, Or a Face? "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

A Hole or a Visage?

We eat drink, smell, sneeze, speak, hear, breath and vomit through holes in the head: our orifices. There are two other orifices we seldom name in polite company, but they are no where near the face and, even though they are highly sensitive to touch and manipulation we allow them to be synonymous with shame. Probably because they are used to expel smelly waste products associated with having a gut microbiome, and eating food. Either that, or the heightened sensitivity of these secreted orifices and the arousal of sexual expressions of said holes and their fleshy surroundings can sometimes be embarrassing. They spend most of their time hidden behind layers of clothing and seldom, if ever, view the sun.

So, most writers have little to say about an orifice such as the ear or the nose which have little to do to actively engage in acts of sexual stimulation. (I dont want to ignore the wonderful smells that are arousing, nor the sexual appeal of a tenors lyrical voice, but these physical structures are limited in their usefulness as far as mechanisms for sexual play. One seldom hears of ear-anal penetration for example. Brown nosing is a derogatory term rarely used in erotic literature.) Most attention is focused upon the penis, the mouth and other penis-accessible orifices, especially the one where babies emerge, over a gestational period of time, of course.

Do you know how people oftentimes resemble their pets? The short grouchy butch guy with the bulldog or the fluffy-haired poodle owner. I wonder if the same thing exists between a persons face and their own orifices? I mean a face is made up of eyes, skin and orifices so there is bound to be a correlation there, but how often do people resemble their lower orifice? I mean if someone calls you an asshole, its usually because you are a jerk and not because they have noticed any resemblance between you and your, well, you know. I mean how would anyone actually know except the guys at the gym, maybe, unless you are a porn star or something. Is it really what you want to be known for in polite society?

Just as the elevator doors shut:

Hey, I know you from someplace.

Sorry, I dont

You used to have black silky hair, youve gone bald, man. I remember, you did porn and you looked just like your asshole.


I never forget a face or an ass for that matter, you resemble your ass. Your porn was like watching the Patty Duke Show.

A rare occurrence, I am sure, but we need to see more butts to know if the correlation actually exists or if Im just talking out my ass. Maybe our photo IDs should have a front view of the face, a side view, and an ass view. Peo...


SJW fail: Pink p***y hats are now racist, transphobic "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Last year, scores of protesters descended into Washington D.C. to protest the inauguration of Donald Trump. Dubbed the Women's March, these passionate and unabashed left wing protesters donned pink hats, cutely named p***y hats - a reference to the Access Hollywood tape, where the president is heard joking with former Today show host Billy Bush, making lewd remarks about women. The hot mic moment occurred in 2005. The tape was leaked in October of 2016 and had no discernable impact on the race. Trump still won. This year, however, could spell the end of the pink p***y hats because they're problematic. According to the social justice warriors of America, it excludes transgender and non-binary persons (whatever the hell the latter means), and women of color, whose genitals might not be pink. I'm not joking (via Washington Free Beacon): ...the Detroit Free Press reports that women activists in Michigan and elsewhere are making a conscious effort to move away from the hat out of fear that it "excludes and is offensive to transgender women and gender nonbinary people who don't have typical female genitalia and to women of color because their genitals are more likely to be brown than pink." "I personally won't wear one because if it hurts even a few people's feelings, then I don't feel like it's unifying," said Phoebe Hopps, the founder of Women's March Michigan. "I care more about mobilizing people to the polls than wearing one hat one day of the year." Hopps said it is not just her, and that national Women's March organizers "are not making it the cornerstone of our messaging because ... there's a few things wrong with the message." The Facebook page for the Women's March in Pensacola agreed, lecturing followers that "The Pink P*ssy Hat reinforces the notion that woman = vagina and vagina = woman, and both of these are incorrect." LaShawn Ebly, co-chair of Black Lives Matter-Lansing, told the Free Press that she intends to make the hats the cornerstone of her speech at an upcoming rally. "I will say this one thing: It is a problem," she said by way of a preview. Yeah, there's something wrong, but I don't think it has to do with the hats. At the same time, there is nothing as entertaining as left wingers eating each other.

Haitian government claims ousted dictator Baby Doc Duvalier laundered stolen money through Trump Tower

12 Jan 2018 at 12:32 ET

President Donald Trump insulted Haiti during an Oval Office meeting with lawmakers, but he once signed off on a shady real estate deal with the nations ousted dictator.

More than a fifth of Trumps condominiums in the U.S. have been purchased since the 1980s in secretive cash transactions that fit a Treasury Department definition of suspicious transactions, reported Buzzfeed News.

Records show more than 1,300 Trump condos were purchased through shell companies, which allow buyers to shield their finances and identities, and without a mortgage, which protects buyers from lender inquiries.

Those two characteristics raise alarms about possible money laundering, according to statements issued in recent months by the Department of Treasury, which has investigated transactions just like those all over the country.

The agency may even require real estate professionals to adopt new programs to keep illegally obtained funds from being plowed into luxury housing to conceal the moneys origins.

The FBI's hand behind #Russiagate "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

In the Watergate era, liberals warned about U.S. intelligence agencies manipulating U.S. politics, but now Trump-hatred has blinded many of them to this danger becoming real. Russia-gate is becoming FBI-gate, thanks to the official release of unguarded text messages between loose-lipped FBI counterintelligence official Peter Strzok and his garrulous girlfriend, FBI lawyer Lisa Page. Despite his former job as chief of the FBI's counterintelligence section, Strzok had the naive notion that texting on FBI phones could not be traced. Strzok must have slept through "Security 101." Or perhaps he was busy texting during that class. Girlfriend Page cannot be happy at being misled by his assurance that using office phones would be a secure way to conduct their affair(s). It would have been unfortunate enough for Strzok and Page to have their adolescent-sounding texts merely exposed, revealing the reckless abandon of star-crossed lovers hiding (they thought) secrets from cuckolded spouses, office colleagues, and the rest of us. However, for the never-Trump plotters in the FBI, the official release of just a fraction (375) of almost 10,000 messages does incalculably more damage than that.


Leading Democrats support and enable Trumps warrantless domestic spying "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Given that Donald Trump has deep authoritarian tendencies and sees the government as existing to serve his personal needs and attack his opponents, you would think that Democrats would seize every opportunity to limit his powers. But although they have been deeply critical of him, when it comes to the national security state, the Democratic leadership seems willing to extend to him the sweeping domestic spying powers that Congress gave president Obama.

Glenn Greenwald points out that leading Democrats like Nancy Pelosi, when they had the opportunity to side with some Republicans and defeat it, instead sided with Donald Trump and canvassed Democratic votes against a joint Republican/Democratic move to limit warrantless domestic spying, thus ensuring its defeat. This should not be that surprising because Pelosi, for all her liberal posturing, is very much a neoliberal and has long been a staunch supporter of the national security state and its enforcement arms, the FBI, CIA, and NSA. Greenwald explains what happened.

Back in the summer of 2013, as the Snowden revelations of mass domestic surveillance sparked a global debate about privacy and abuse of spying powers, an extraordinary bipartisan alliance formed in Congress to impose serious limits on the NSAs power to spy on Americans without warrants. Back then, a bill that would have imposed real limits and safeguards on the NSA, one jointly sponsored by Conyers and Amash, unexpectedly picked up large numbers of supporters from both parties despite opposition from both parties Congressional leadership to the point where it looked like it was unstoppably headed for passage.

Official Washington and its national security community began to panic over what looked to be the first rollback of government national security power since the 9/11 attack. Fortunately for the NSA, CIA and FBI, they found a crucial ally to kill the bill: the liberal icon Nancy Pelosi. Behind the scenes, she pressured and coerced enough House Democrats to oppose the reform bill, ensuring its narrow defeat. The Conyers/Amash bill which would have severely limited domestic mass surveillance was defeated by the razor-thin margin of 217-205. Foreign Policy magazine correctly identified [Pelosi as] the key author of its defeat, the person who single-handedly saved NSA mass surveillance in the U.S.

For anyone who believes in the basic value of individual privacy and the dangers of mass surveillance, Pelosi deserved all the criticism she received back then for single-handedly saving the NSAs mass surveillance powers from reform. But at least then, her partisan de...


Liam Neeson: Sexual harassment allegations have become a witch-hunt "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Liam Neeson has described the wave of sexual misconduct allegations that have swept the entertainment industry as "a bit of a witch-hunt" and appeared to dismiss breast groping as "childhood stuff" in an interview on Irish television. Speaking on The Late Late Show on RTE, the Hollywood A-lister said "there's some people, famous people, being suddenly accused of touching some girl's knee, or something, and suddenly they're being dropped from their program, or something". The French actor Catherine Deneuve drew sharp criticism this week when she also used the term "witch-hunt" to describe the chain of events since allegations of serial sexual assault were made against Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein last year.

Jeff Sessions blocks efforts to end debtors' prisons "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Last week, Attorney General Jeff Sessions retracted an Obama-era guidance to state courts that was meant to end debtors' prisons, where people who are too poor to pay fines are sent. This practice is blatantly unconstitutional, and the guidance had helped jump-start reform around the country. Its withdrawal is the latest sign that the federal government is retreating from protecting civil rights for the most vulnerable among us. The Justice Department helped shine a light on the harms of fine and fees when it investigated Ferguson, Mo., three years ago after the killing of the teenager Michael Brown by a police officer. As one of the lawyers on that case, I saw firsthand the damage that the city had wrought on its black community. Ferguson used its criminal justice system as a for-profit enterprise, extracting millions from its poorest citizens. Internal emails revealed the head of finance directing policing strategy to maximize revenue rather than ensure public safety. Officers told us they were pressured to issue as many tickets as possible. Even the local judge was in on it, imposing penalties of $302 for jaywalking and $531 for allowing weeds to grow in one's yard. He issued arrest warrants for residents who fell behind on payments - including a 67-year-old woman who had been fined for a trash-removal violation - without inquiring whether they even had the ability to pay the exorbitant amounts. The arrests resulted in new charges, more fees and the suspension of driver's licenses. These burdens fell disproportionately on African-Americans.

Protectionism Is About Much More than Nationalism "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

By: ngel Manuel Garca Carmona

Freedom fighters around the globe are aware of the rise of new and serious attacks against free trade. There are bilateral agreements that "harmonize" regulations and may favor crony capitalism, European agrarian policy tariffs that protect farmers, alt-right and populist nationalists claims against delocalization of companies, and so on.

This short list of examples, reminds us though that protectionism is not only an issue of populist nationalist parties that stem from rivalry among nation states and fear of foreign "enemies."  They do not necessarily stem from nationalistic concerns, but may simply be a result of ordinary special interst politics as with the Common Agricultural Policy which which subsidizes European farmers to produce crops which are often grown more cheaply in developing countries. 

Unfortunately, many people continue to be unaware of the multitude of lesser cases of commercial protectionism, based on regulations that are designed to benefit guilds or some specific type of commercial interest. 

What Is Prtectionism?

A protectionist measure has the aim of shielding a business or indistry from the spontaneous changes in the market that could affect it.

Unhampered markets, as Mises pointed out in The Anti-Capitalist Mentality, rely on market "democracy because consumers and companies are free to exchange products and services. Thus, each market action is a referendum on the value of each business or industry. 

There is no top-down effect, but pure spontaneity built on voluntary actions. However, consumers can change their minds about any specific business at any time. The reasons are diverse: there may be a more cutting-edge product offered elsewhere. Consumers may perceive quality to be higher with competitors. New entrepreneurs may be able to offer lower prices. Some companies may response to these challenges with new innovations of their own. Though others may prefer to do nothing mroe than demand government "protection."  

Business "guilds" to use a European term have evolved from the status of pre-Christian Roman mutual aid networks to groups of people dedicated to the same craft who seek government-granted mono...

Now's a Great Time to Stop Meddling in Haiti "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

By: Ryan McMaken

Earlier this week, President Trump allegedly disparaged Haiti, describing it as "sh*thole." The response has been what you might expect. It's been a torrent of demands for apologies from the Trump administration and commentary on how "troubling" Donald Trump's views are. 

Upon hearing of such comments supposedly directed at Haitians, a well informed person might be tempted to think "if only this were the worst thing a US president has inflicted upon the Haitian people." 

But, as is typical for the American left and the mainstream media, uttering mean words is the worst thing a politician can do. Actively meddling in another country's internal affairs and undermining its elections? Well, that's no big deal unless you're Russia, of course. 

Indeed, anyone who has any familiarity at all with the history of US-Haiti relations knows that the US has a long, well-established habit of intervening in the island nation  often in a brutal manner. 

For more than a century (beginning in 1915) the United States has indulged in various invasion, massacres, coups, and other interventions designed to keep Haiti in the shadow of the United States and appropriately subservient as desired by American statesmen.

In just the last 25 years, the United States has sent American military forces to the island twice in 1994 and 2004 and continues to repeatedly undermine Haitian political institutions every time the nation attempts an election. 

If Haiti is as awful as Donald Trump (allegedly) says it is, Trump could do some good by directing the state department, CIA, and all other federal institutions to take a hand's off approach to the island nation. Until then, unfortunately, the United States continues to share the blame for the destruction and corruption of Haitian institutions. 

A History of Occupation

As Edwidge Danticat recounts in the NewYorker:

On July 28, 1915, United States Marines landed in Haiti on the orders of President Woodrow Wilson, who feared that European interests might reduce American commercial and political influence in Haiti, and in the region surrounding the Panama Canal. The precipitating event was the assassination of the...


Bitter pill to swallow: Why iodine tablets won't save you from nuclear fallout "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

As Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un battle it out over the size of their nuclear buttons, attention is again turning to a common myth - that swallowing a simple pill will guard against radioactive fallout. Iodine tablets, widely considered to offer the antidote to nuclear apocalypse, are reportedly the subject of a surge of interest in the wake of the world leaders' recent saber-rattling. The substance - officially called potassium iodide, with the chemical name KI - is often marketed as a 'radiation blocking' solution that can protect against poisoning and thyroid cancer. In reality, however, the tablets have a much more limited scope and are not even recommended as an essential part of FEMA's emergency kit in the event of nuclear disaster.


British Trump Supporters Disrupt London Mayor Sadiq Khan Speech "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

U.S. flag waving British supporters of President Donald Trump and Brexit disrupted a speech by Trump-hater London Mayor Sadiq Khan at an appearance before the Fabian Society in London on Saturday. The non-violent protest which called for a citizens arrest of Khan went on for several minutes before the protesters agreed to leave.

Khan did not engage the protesters, but afterward snidely referred to them as very stable geniuses, a mocking reference to Trumps comments about himself in response to questions about his mental health.

The protesters were reportedly with a group called the White Pendragons. Protesters told the media as they were being led out of the venue they are not racist, but they have issues with Khans religion disqualifying him from being mayor of London. Regardless, it is fun to see the Lefts tactics used against them. Especially when a fuming Khan is seen on video furiously flipping through the pages of a newspaper as the protest went on.

Sky News reported on the protest:

Mr Khan was about to start speaking to the Fabian Society in London when he was disrupted by protesters from a group called the White Pendragons, who shouted pro-Trump and pro-Brexit slogans.

It came after a tweet by Mr Khan on Friday, in which he said Mr Trump had got the message that he was not welcome in London after the President cancelled a planned visit to open the new US embassy.

In a video posted on social media, one protester could be heard saying: Ladies and gentlemen, were here today to make a non-violent, peaceful citizens arrest.

5 Reasons Why Egypt and Sudan Might Be About to Go to War "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Cairo and Khartoum have allied themselves with opposing power blocs, building on inherent tension between the neighboring countries.

(MEE)  Tension between Egypt and Sudan has increased this week amid military build-ups on their borders and fears that the crisis in the Gulf has now spread to eastern Africa.

Turkish media reported on 4 January that Egyptian forces have arrived in Eritrea, which borders eastern Sudan, with backing from the UAE and opposition groups from the region.

That same day, Sudan recalled its ambassador from Cairo, then two days later declared a state of emergency in Kassala state, which neighbours Eritrea, and shut the border without explanation. Eyewitnesses in Kassala have since said that large numbers of troops have passed through, heading towards the border area.

Ahmed Abu Zeid, Egyptian foreign ministry spokesman, said Cairo was comprehensively assessing the situation with a view to making the appropriate response.

The increase in tension comes just weeks after Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan arrived in Khartoum, the first visit by a Turkish leader since the Ottoman Empire withdrew from Sudan in 1885. Sudan and Turkey signed 13 agreements during the December visit, including military accords.

Cairo didnt officially comment on Erdogans visit, but pro-government media have accused it as being a conspiracy against Egyptian national security. Khartoum in turn has denied the Egyptian accusations and says that Cairo has no right to interfere in Sudanese issues.

During the past year Sudan and Egypt, which have a long-standing enmity, have increasingly allied themselves with opposing Middle Eastern power blocs. Egypt has the backing of Saudi Arabia and UAE, the key advocates of a months-long blockade against Qatar. Sudan meanwhile has allied itself with Qatar and Turkey, which has a military base in the Gulf kingdom.

This is not the first time the two countries have fallen out.

Aside from Eritrea, two other territorial disputes have strained Su...

On January 13, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and the Tiger Forces, supported by the Russian Aerospace Forces, captured the strategic Tell al-town of Daman and the nearby hill northeast of the Abu Duhur airbase in eastern Idlib, according to the Hezbollah media wing in Syria.

The media outlet added that the SAA also captured the villages of Tell Ahmar, Tell al-Sheh, Qalat al-Sheikh, Mazraa, Umm Amod, Hanytiyah, Maktaba, Tell Huysid, Abed, Shuyhat al-Lahab, al-Safa, Tlail al-Safa, Binan, Umm Jirn, al-Ziraa, Burj al-Ruman, Hafrat al-Hass and Abu Ghata, Jub Jassem in southwestern Aleppo.

The Hezbollah media wing also confirmed that the SAA and its allies repelled Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) attack on their positions southwest of the Abu Duhur airbase and secured the villages of Rabayah and al-Khuraybah there. Syrian soldiers destroyed two VBIEDs of HTS while repelling the attack, according to the source.

Moreover, pro-government sources confirmed that Russian warplane destroyed three heavy VBIEDs and a convoy of HTS in Khan al-Subul village in southern Idlib. Syrian opposition activists said that the VBIEDs explosions killed several civilians in Khan al-Subul.

Meanwhile, HTS and its allies launched the third counter-attack against the SAA and its allies southwest of the Abu Duhur airbase. The HTS-linked news agency Ibaa claimed on January 13 that HTS fighters captured the villages of Talab, al-Dabshiyah, Musharifah and Tell al-Khazanah.

Coincidence? As US global influence recedes, secession demands grow "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

One of the more welcomed outcomes of the paring back of the US State Department bureaucracy is the elimination of scores of "status quo enthusiasts." Since the end of World War II, the State Department's ranks have been populated by foreign service officers and career diplomats who have championed the international status quo. These minions of Foggy Bottom received encouragement for their protective stance on post-World War II and Cold War in President George H. W. Bush's speech on September 11, 1990, which was titled, "Toward a New World Order." Under the "new world order," regional and global security concerns would supplant democratic independence movements. The immediate effect of this "order" was brutal crackdowns on secession in the periphery of the former Soviet Union, including Abkhazia, South Ossetia, Nagorno-Karabakh, Transnistria, as well as in Somalia, the Kurdish regions of Iraq and Turkey, Sudan, and Ethiopia. However, in Yugoslavia, which the United States and European Union wanted to see dissolved, secessionists in seven constituent states were encouraged to secede from the federation. That resulted in the bloodiest military conflicts in Europe since World War II. Leaders of secessionist groups visiting Washington were traditionally shunned by the State Department. These hapless would-be presidents and prime ministers would be lucky to meet with a low-ranking State Department employee. However, if their independence movements were championed by the Central Intelligence Agency, they would get red carpet treatment. Such was the case with Secretary of State Madeleine Albright's favorite Balkans "toy boy," Hashim Thaci, the leader of the terrorist Kosovo Liberation Army and now President of the Republic of Kosovo, which was carved out of Serbia but is still unrecognized by many of the world's most important nations, including China and Russia.

NHS figures show the worst Accident & Emergency crisis on record CREDIT: CHRIS J. RATCLIFF


The growing NHS crisis has been fuelled by the closure of almost 1,000 care homes housing more than 30,000 pensioners, research suggests.

It comes as NHS figures show the worst Accident & Emergency crisis on record, amid a 37 per cent rise in the numbers stuck in hospital for want of social care, since 2010.

Experts said hospitals were being overwhelmed by the spread of flubecause they had almost no spare capacity to cope with surges in demand.

The report by industry analysts shows that in the last decade, 929 care homes housing 31,201 pensioners have closed, at a time when the population is ageing rapidly.

The research from LaingBuisson show care homes going out of business at an ever increasing rate, with 224 care homes closed between March 2016 and March 2017, amounting to more than 2,000 beds.

Fears of Nuclear War Lead to Increased Sales of Potassium Iodide "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Potassium iodide distributors have a friend on Twitter:

A Twitter battle over the size of each "nuclear button" possessed by President Donald Trump and North Korea's Kim Jong-un has spiked sales of a drug that protects against radiation poisoning.

Troy Jones, who runs the website, said demand for potassium iodide soared last week, after Trump tweeted that he had a "much bigger & more powerful" button than Kim a statement that raised new fears about an escalating threat of nuclear war. "On Jan. 2, I basically got in a month's supply of potassium iodide and I sold out in 48 hours," said Jones, 53, who is a top distributor of the drug in the United States. His Mooresville, N.C., firm sells all three types of the product approved by the Food and Drug Administration. No prescription is required.

In that two-day period, Jones said, he shipped about 140,000 doses of potassium iodide, also known as KI, which blocks the thyroid from absorbing radioactive iodine and protects against the risk of cancer. Without the tweet, he typically would have sent out about 8,400 doses to private individuals, he said. Jones also sells to government agencies, hospitals and universities, which aren't included in that count.

Alan Morris, president of the Williamsburg, Va.-based pharmaceutical firm Anbex Inc., which distributes potassium iodide, said he's seen a bump in demand, too. "We are a wonderful barometer of the level of anxiety in the country," said Morris.

Note: A comment on the article claims that Nukepills is massively overcharging for the substance.

Trump's efforts for immigration reform seek to filter out "bad" migrants, catching resistance from liberal opponents The January 11, 2018 meeting with several US Senators has been reported in many media outlets, including our own for the reported swearing and profanity the President used in the meeting. However, the real matter is what the meeting is about is quite important, and it is important to understand the direction the US President wishes to take on immigration policy going forward. The White House's own website lays the the idea out very clearly. I have boldened some of it for emphasis: The United States must adopt an immigration system that serves the national interest. To restore the rule of law and secure our border, President Trump is committed to constructing a border wall and ensuring the swift removal of unlawful entrants. To protect American workers, the President supports ending chain migration, eliminating the Visa Lottery, and moving the country to a merit-based entry system. These reforms will advance the safety and prosperity of all Americans while helping new citizens assimilate and flourish.

The Forgotten Motive Behind Israels Warmongering in the Middle East "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

(ANTIMEDIA)  In the over two decades that an American-installed puppet ruled over Iran prior to the 1979 Islamic Revolution, Iran and Israel maintained friendly ties. In 1968, the two countries set up a joint venture known as the Eilat-Ashkelon Pipeline Co. (EAPC) to transport Iranian oil to the Mediterranean, primarily after Egypt blocked the Suez Canal. This move hindered Iranian oil exports at the time. Iran was already supplying Israel with the bulk of its oil prior to the formation of EAPC but did so secretly to avoid tension with the Arab world.

For about a decade, the pipeline carried Iranian oil from the Red Sea for export to Europe. Following the fall of Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi in 1979, the Iranian leadership has been demanding their share of revenue and assets that remained in Israel, no longer a country recognized by the Islamic Republic.

According to Business Insider, no one knows how much profit the EAPC has made or how much it is worth because it is protected in a similar way to Israels intelligence agencies through the use of gag orders. The source of its oil, while suspected to be mainly from former Soviet states, is also protected by the gag orders. Even Business Insiders report states that the article had to pass through the military censor prior to publishing. However, we do know that the EAPC has reportedly become the largest distributor of oil in Israel with ambitions to become a major hub in the Mediterranean.

In 1994, Iran began pursuing an arbitration case against Israel, first in France and then in Switzerland. In 2016, the Swiss court handling the matter...

Trumps mother immigrated to the USA in May of 1930, after the 1929 stock market crash, when unemployment had already risen to around 10%, and a lot of rich people had gone bankrupt. The US had no need of Trumps mother as a domestic (maid) in 1930. Trumps mother, Mary MacLeod, was not persecuted. She was not banished by the UK like so many Scots were. Born into a huge family, on an island, she was simply one less hungry mouth for Britain to feed during the depression and one more for the USA to feed when there were many hungry American mouths already. The entire world is now paying the consequences of this failure in US immigration policy.

Patent Troll Finjan Manages to Defend a Patent (on Appeal) and the Trolls Lobby is Loving It "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Todd M. HughesSummary: Blue Coat (now owned by Symantec) has attempted and failed to invalidate all of Finjans patents using Section 101/Alice; those who are in the business of trolling view that as particularly good news because the judgment came from Timothy Dyk and Todd Hughes (much younger and appointed a few years ago)

THE USPTO had granted software patents far too easily before Alice, so in recent years we saw a lot of patent trolling from the likes of Finjan (such trolling is drying up over time, owing to courts decisions which repel further action).

The high-profile patent trolls and their supporters were glad to see that, for a change, after a case reached the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit (CAFC) the troll got its way.

Kazakh citizens launch petition after dirty emissions turn the snow black "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Authorities in the central Kazakh city of Temirtau have launched an investigation after a mysterious dust turned the snow black. Local residents have blamed the metallurgical complex in the area for causing the strange pollution. A winter wonderland was turned into a rather depressing view in early January, when a layer of soot-like dust covered the Kazakh city. Temirtau residents took to social media to share their pictures and footage of snow piles coated with black dust. "How is it possible to live in a such city? Look at this dirty snow and dust settling on clothes. It's hard to breathe, I suffer from asthma," one local woman complained, as she signed a petition "against black snow." More than 5,000 people have put their names to the letter so far, calling on the authorities to take action against the pollution.

FBI Issues Urgent Warning About Evil Geniuses Threatening Public Safety "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

(ANTIWAR.COM Privacy and security interests in keeping personal data away from prying eyes continues to be a source of severe concern for the FBI, which wants to be able to access any data off of any device, and considers encryption they cant break as an urgent public safety issue.

FBI officials have been so desperate to vilify the idea of personal data encryption that they are using increasingly extreme rhetoric, with forensic effort Stephen Flatley recently referring to Apple Computer as evil geniuses for making it harder to break into their devices.

Flatley went on to complain that Apple was deliberately trying to thwart law enforcement, suggesting that they are jerks for having done so.

Beyond the FBI being mad, its not clear what they propose to do. They want to have absolute unfettered access to Americans data at a moments notice, but encryption makes that completely impossible.

Pakistani General Claims the Pakistani Shadowy Secret Service (ISI) Will Remove US from Afghanistan "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Guest post by Joe Hoft

Pakistani General Hamid Gul recently spoke on Pakistani TV and stated that the Pakistani secret service (ISI) would ultimately be responsible for the removal of the US from Afghanistan.

The tweet includes that video below

This isnt the first time the Pakistani ISI has been reportedly radicalized along the lines of ISIS. The BBC reported

As to the US special forces raid that killed the al-Qaeda leader, questions abound about what the ISI knew and when it knew it.

Similar Western doubts over the ISIs loyalties have been a recurring theme in recent years.

In documents leaked in April 2011 on the Wikileaks website, US authorities described the ISI as a terrorist organisation on a par with al-Qaeda and the Taliban.

In the same month the US militarys top officer, Adm Mike Mullen, also accused the ISI of having links with the Taliban.

He said it had a long-standing relationship with a militant group run by Afghan insurgent Jalaluddin Haqqani, which targets US troops in Afghanistan.

President Trump recently announced that the US would cut providing $255 million to Pakistan in military aid.  Looks like it is about time.

Nigel Farage: 'Maybe' there should be a second referendum on EU membership "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

The ex-Ukip leader said 'my mind is actually changing on this' Nigel Farage has said it may be time to hold a second referendum on Brexit to put an end to the "moaning" of politicians who have not accepted the previous vote. The ex-Ukip leader argued that leading political figures who have been arguing against Brexit would "never, ever, ever" stop fighting it and so the best way to draw a line under the issue could be a second public vote. Mr Farage is seen as one of the architects of Brexit and has been the most vociferous critic of people like ex-prime minister Tony Blair and Lord Adonis who have suggested it could be undone. Speaking on Channel 5's The Wright Stuff, Mr Farage said: "What is for certain is that the Cleggs, the Blairs, the Adonises will never, ever-ever give up.

Pentagon To Make Huge Investment In Future Syrian Troublemaking w/$143 Million Buildup of Jordanian Air Base "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Pentagon budget calls for $143 million buildup at Jordan air base


The Pentagon wants to pump $143 million into upgrades at a strategic air base in Jordan, more than any other overseas Air Force operational site, as the military moves to expand drone and fighter flights in the region.

The funding, included in the Pentagon budget passed by Congress last week, highlights the growing importance of Jordan as the U.S. military makes plans in a neighborhood of unpredictable partners.

Muwaffaq Salti Air Base, positioned near Jordans border with Syria and Iraq, has played a key role for the U.S. in its battle against the Islamic State group. But the base, according to the Air Force, has been overwhelmed by the pace of operations. Fighter-bombers from other nations involved in the conflict, such as Belgium and the Netherlands, also have operated from its twin runways.

Air Force budget documents say the facility has limited ramp space to launch combat sorties, has zero dedicated space to support cargo and personnel recovery operations and is operating at four to five ti...

Boeings prototype cargo drone can haul 500-pound loads "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

In the future, autonomy wont just mean you can relax in the passenger seat on your drive home from work. Driverless vehicles of all kinds are set to revolutionize the cargo industry, too, from delivering a pizza or dropping off an Amazon package, to hauling much larger shipments across continents and the high seas. Naturally, Boeing is one of many companies investing in cargo planes of tomorrow, and is keen to show off some of its early work in the form of a huge octocopter capable of carrying loads of up to 500 pounds (over 250kg). In less than three months, engineers at Boeing built and carried out successful test flights of the all-electric prototype, possibly (but unofficially) breaking a Guinness world record in the process.

The rough-and-ready concoction of metal and batteries measures 15 feet long, 18 feet wide and 4 feet tall, weighing in at 747 pounds (nearly 339kg). In other words, it dwarfs the consumer DJI drone you got for Christmas. Obviously Boeings prototype is far from a commercial product, but the firm says itll be used as a flying test bed to mature the building blocks of autonomous technology for future applications.

Cop beats, sexually assaults handcuffed woman so bad, he's now in prison "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Former Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department (LVMPD) officer Richard Scavone pleaded guilty last year in federal court to assaulting a handcuffed woman in his custody. After the plea, authorities released the body camera footage of the assault. It is nothing short of infuriating and shows the level of violence a woman-abusing cop was willing to take to assert his authority. This week, in a rare move, the former bad cop was actually held accountable and was sentenced to a year in prison. As the Las Vegas Review-Journal reported, U.S. District Judge Richard Boulware also ordered Scavone to serve a year of supervised release, pay a $20,000 fine and complete 300 hours of community service after his imprisonment, according to the Justice Department. The encounter happened in January of 2015 after this abusive cop thought he had nabbed himself a prostitute.

Is Trump's Afghan policy aimed at Taliban or at China? "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

In recent months the US President has reversed yet another campaign pledge to pull out of Afghanistan, America's longest war, and instead has begun to deploy an added 3,000 troops there. At the same time he has lashed out at the government of Pakistan accusing it of aiding the Afghan Taliban and pledging to cut all US military aid to that country as reprisal. A deeper view into the situation suggests that both moves are linked and have to do with not the Taliban and the Afghan terrorists. It has very much to do with ongoing developments of peaceful construction of the Chinese-led Belt, Road Initiative and desperate attempts of Washington to try to stop those developments using other pretexts. In June 2017 after intense discussions with his military Trump authorized an added up to 4,000 US soldiers ostensibly to further train an Afghan military in dealing with an increasingly successful Taliban force. By December the Pentagon was engaged in a massive air campaign it said was aimed at destroying the Taliban drug labs. Comment: And now sending in more troops and equipment: 'Fighting season': Pentagon to send '1,000 new troops and drones' to Afghanistan Arguing that the Pakistan ISI intelligence service was complicit in giving Taliban, the CIA-trained and al Qaeda-associated Haqqani and other terrorist groups sanctuary across the border, Trump then froze military aid to Pakistan. It is allegedly to force Pakistan's military and intelligence to cut support for the Taliban and other Islamist groups. In one of his infamous tweets, the US President wrote, "The United States has foolishly given Pakistan more than 33 billion dollars in aid over the last 15 years, and they have given us nothing but lies & deceit, thinking of our leaders as fools...They give safe haven to the terrorists we hunt in Afghanistan, with little help.

The document, first reported on by USA Today, explains the agencys role in assisting Husseins 1959 trip to the United States to ensure continued American foreign aid to his country.
The memo says that the 24-year-old king was especially desirous of female companionship during his Los Angeles visit and it was requested that appropriate arrangements be made through a controlled source of the Office in order to assure a satisfied visit. Hussein would go on to meet with a divorced 32-year-old B-list movie actress named Susan Cabot (born Harriet Shapiro), who appeared in movies like Sorority Girl and The Wasp Woman.

Unlike anti-depressants, psilocybin mushrooms can actually cure depression "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

A revolutionary new study is once again revealing a natural approach to be far superior to big pharma solutions-this time involving psilocybin, the active compound in magic mushrooms. The study, published in the scientific journal Neuropharmacology, found that clinically depressed people had increased neural responses to fearful faces one day after a psilocybin-assisted therapy session, which positively predicted positive clinical outcomes. "Psilocybin-assisted therapy might mitigate depression by increasing emotional connection," neuroscientist and study author Leor Roseman, a Ph.D. student at Imperial College London, explained to PsyPost. This is almost the exact opposite of how standard anti-depressants operate, as SSRI's typically work by creating an "emotional blunting." "[T]his is unlike SSRI antidepressants which are criticized for creating in many people a general emotional blunting," noted Roseman.


Russia's Efforts to Divide Us Are Not New "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

In his book Spymaster: My Thirty-two Years in Intelligence and Espionage Against the West, former KGB head of foreign counterintelligence Oleg Kalugin disclosed some of the fake news that the Russians put into Americas national discourse during the directorship of Yuri Andropov:

Under Andropov the disinformation branch of the KGB flourished. For both domestic and external consumption, it concocted stories to deceive, confuse, and influence targeted audiences. It conducted operations to weaken Soviet adversaries and to undermine the internal stability and foreign policies of the Western world in order to facilitate favorable conditions for the eventual triumph of Communism.

The CIA ousted President Nixon; the CIA arranged the 1978 mass suicide and murder of more than nine hundred people of the Jonestown cult; the U.S. was developing an ethnic weapon that would kill blacks and spare whites; the CIA was behind the assassinations of Olof Palme in Sweden, Indira Gandhi in India, and Aldo Moro in Italy, and an attempt on the popes life; the U.S. military planned to use tactical nuclear weapons in Italy in case the left parties came to power; U.S. Army scientists developed the AIDS virus; Americans steal foreign babies to use their organs for transplant these and hundreds of other faked stories hit the front pages of the world media at one time or another. And though Andropov died in 1984, his legacy and that of his KGB predecessors in the area of psychological warfare eventually developed into practical guidelines for the KGB and its friends and allies across the world.

He also wrote about more sinister active measures.

One of our dirty tricks involved a nasty letter-writing campaign against African diplomats at the United Nations an idea cooked up by KGB headquarters in Moscow and approved by the Communist Party Central Committee. Our KGB staff, using new typewriters and wearing gloves so as not to leave fingerprints, typed up hundreds of anonymous hate letters and sent them to dozens of African missions. The letters, purportedly from white supremacists as well as average Americans, were filled with virulent racist diatribes. The African diplomats publicized some of the letters as examples of the racism still rampant in America, and members of the American and foreign...

Celebrating That Thing You Didn't Do "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

I took a look at CNN Politics this morning and saw this blurb which I found profoundly disturbing:

But then I realized that the president had been on Twitter disputing the accounts of what he said. In one tweet, he claimed that what he said was tough but different from what was being reported. In two other tweets he expressed his view that the immigration deal under discussion would force America to accept large numbers of people from high crime countries which are doing badly. And, then, finally, he tried to contextualize his shithole remarks to make them less personal to the people of Haiti.

So, saying Haiti is a shithole is not derogatory? Saying a whole continent is a shithole is not derogatory?

The whole spectacle makes me want to vomit.


Trump Takes His White Supremacy to Eleven "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

I often hear people say that its hard to call someone a racist because you never know what is in a persons heart. But I think you can tell a person is a white supremacist when they say things like this:

President Trump reportedly referred to immigrants from Haiti and African countries as coming from shithole countries on Thursday.

Trump made the comment in an Oval Office meeting with lawmakers during a discussion of protections for immigrants from several countries, according to The Washington Post.

Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here? Trump said, according to multiple people briefed on the meeting.

He reportedly suggested that the U.S. should bring in more immigrants from countries like Norway.

Sens. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), Dick Durbin (D-Ill.), Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) and Rep. Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) were present at the meeting, and were surprised by the comments, according to the Post.

Trump has been quoted criticizing immigrants from these countries in the past. The New York Times reported in December that he once suggested that Haitian immigrants all have AIDS, and that Nigerian immigrants would never go back to their huts if granted entrance to the U.S.

When he says we shouldnt have people coming to our country from Haiti or Africa but should instead should have more people immigrating from Norway, thats not even code anymore. Thats precisely what any Nazi would say. But even more remarkable is that most Nazis would realize this and if they were somehow serving as the president of the United States, theyd know enough to be a lot more subtle about their preferences.

That Trump would spout out such clear Nordic/Aryan supremacy in the midst of so many witnesses, including members of the opposing party, suggests that hes either insane or completely indifferent to how he is perceived about racial matters. Maybe, like when he suggests we should steal Iraqs oil, he simply has no idea how that sounds to most people.

I dont know, but whether hes evil, insane or stupid,...


Torrent Links Restored In Torrentz2 After Mystery Disappearance "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

After sudden disappearance, torrent links return to Torrentz2

In August 2016, one of the most popular torrent website, had abruptly shut down its shop leaving many torrentors heart-broken. With the original site out of the scene, many mirror sites popped up to take its place.

However, turned out to be the most successful alternative, in terms of traffic, who never claimed to be an official resurrection of drew millions of users to the site. They just want to do what Torrentz did, or even better.

We always wanted to operate a site as beautiful as the original torrentz site so recreating it was the only way to do it, the sites operator had told TorrentFreak in August last year.

While Torrentz2 copied the look of Torrentz, it ran its own meta-search engine, indexing even more sites than its famous predecessor.

We want to add more sites to our index. There are 80 domains now. There is a really huge list of new torrent sites that we discover and will be added soon.

We are looking for hamsters to power up our servers, we believe that we are very close to finding them, the operator says.

But, to the surprise of many, this site too abruptly disappeared just before Christmas last year with all links to the external torrent sites being removed leading to speculation that it was the end of the site. It turned into a database of torrent metadata instead of a meta-search engine, and traffic started declining.

The message on the homepage of the site was changed as well to claim it is a free, fast and powerful meta-search engine instead of claiming to be a free, fast and powerful meta-search engine combining results from dozens of search engines.

While many people started losing hope that the links would never return with weeks passing by, until this week when the disappeared links were added to the site again restoring Torrent2 to its former glory.

So, what was the reason behind the sudden disappearance and reappearance of the torrent links?

When TorrentFreak contacted the operator of the site to find the reason, he just replied that presently he does not wish to comment on the disappearing links incident or the sites future.

Does that mean the sudden disappearance and reappearance of the torrent links was due to an operational change, or a technical error, or a simple mistake, or outside intervention and the speculation list goes on..

Breaking: DOJ Turns Over 1.2 Million Documents Related to 2016 Election to House Intel Committee "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

The Department of Justice turned over some of the 1.2 MILLION documents requested by lawmakers this past week.

The documents are related to DOJ activities during the 2016 election.

Chad Pergram from FOX News tweeted on Friday that the DOJ turned over some of the 1.2 million documents requested to the House Intelligence Committee.

TGPs Cristina Laila reported on Friday the DOJ turned over all documents related to the Russia dossier to lawmakers earlier in the week.

According to the Daily Caller, Nunes and the House Intel Committee reviewed all FBI and DOJ docs on the dossier including the FISA apps.

Both Sara Carter and Sean Hannity reported this week Hillarys phony Russia dossier was used to obtain a FISA warrant in order to spy on Trumps campaign.

It appears those documents were strictly related to the phony dossier.

The documents mentioned by Chad Pergram may be a separate set of documents that include DOJ activity during the 2016 election.

It is becoming clear that the Obama DOJ and FBI worked to spy on and defeat the Trump Campaign which is the largest political scandal in US history.

Attempted murder is how one analyst described the medical centers decision to leave an incapacitated young woman at a bus stop in frigid weather.

(COMMONDREAMS)  Described as a horrifying depiction of the reality of U.S. for-profit healthcare, a Baltimore-based psychotherapist this week caught on video University of Maryland Medical Center staff dumping a clearly incapacitated young woman into the freezing Maryland weather wearing only a thin hospital gown and socks.

Is this what healthcare in Baltimore City has come to? asked Imamu Baraka, who captured the disturbing scene on his cell phone. The video has since garnered more than two million views.



Posted by Imamu Baraka on Tuesday, January 9, 2018

Barakas video soon sparked national headlines and widespread outrage, with many noting that patient dumping is a pervasive and under-discussed product of a system that does not guarantee healthcare as a right to all.

RoseAnn DeMoro, executive director of National Nurses United, concluded that the only solution is to implement single-payer, Medicare for All or Americans continue to suffer/die.

Others echoed DeMoros call, arguing that the medical centers behavior is essentially attempted murder.



Trump joins the EU "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

The lead item on the BBC News website this morning was:

Iran's "anger" at Trump was the BBC's main angle on the story, which concerns the US's imposition of sanctions on the head of Iran's judiciary, Ayatollah Sadeq Amoli-Larijani.

As so often with BBC reports you have to go elsewhere to find the context to the news, including answers to such questions as 'Is the US move merely a whim of Donald Trump's?'.

The answer to that question turns out to be 'no'. The White House is merely joining the E.U., which sanctioned Ayatollah Larijani in 2012 for personally approving and overseeing the imposition of horrific punishments: 

Those sanctions are still in force (being separate to those relating to Irans nuclear programme, lifted back in 2016). 



Proof That Everything is a Simulation A Theory of Everything "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Ready for some mind blowing information

The past and the future exist together simultaneously in one geometric object.

All time exists, all the time.

Everything everywhere in one frozen moment of time and the past influences the future and the future influences the past in an endless feedback loop. Time is affecting all time, all the time. Every moment is co-creating ever other moment both forward and backward in time.

This is a well done video that offers a theory of everything and a model that explains how our simulated reality is constructed and how it works. In this article, Ive summarized the amazing ideas in this video with my own comments. Lets get into some of the things discussed in We Are Living In A Simulation New Evidence! from Real Spirit Dynamics.

Heavy snowfall continues in western to northern Japan, 128 cms (50 inches) in 24 hours for Hiroshima Prefecture "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Snow is continuing to fall on and off in areas of western to northern Japan. The Meteorological Agency says some mountainous areas have received 30 to 50 centimeters of snowfall for the 24 hours until noon on Saturday. As of 11 AM, the city of Ono, Fukui Prefecture, had 83 centimeters of accumulated snow, and Kitahiroshima, in Hiroshima Prefecture, had 128 centimeters. The city of Niigata, facing the Sea of Japan, has had 8 times the average snowfall for this time of year. More snow is forecast, particularly for areas along the Sea of Japan.

The ducks are shown not swimming but on land. They are multi-coloured and include the green and brown mallard.

Text Translation:

Of ducks. The duck, anas, has been aptly named because it is constantly swimming, natare. Some of its species are called Germanie, from Germany, because they eat more than the rest. The goose, anser, derives its name from the duck, either because they are similar or because the goose too is constantly swimming. The goose marks the watches of the night by its constant cry. No other creature picks up the scent of man as it does. It was because of its noise, that the Gauls were detected when they ascended the Capitol.

Each species of bird is born twice; for first the eggs are produced, then they are given form and life by the warmth of the mothers body. They are called eggs, ova, because inside they are full of fluid. Anything that has fluid on the outside is umidum, wet; anything with fluid on the inside is called vividum, life containing. Some people think that the word ovum is of Greek origin. For the Greeks call eggs oa, losing the v. Some eggs are conceived by useless wind; nothing can be hatched from them, however, unless they have been conceived through intercourse with a male bird and penetrated by the spirit carried in his seed. Such is the quality of eggs, they say, that wood soaked in them will not burn, nor clothing, in turn, catch fire. In addition, eggs mixed with chalk, it is said, will glue pieces of glass together.

Previously sealed F.B.I. affidavit reveals Stephen Paddock may have had help from others "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

F.B.I. Special Agent confirms that there may be others complicit in the massacre still on the loose whose identities are not yet known by law enforcement

LAS VEGAS (INTELLIHUB) A previously sealed affidavit in support of an application for a search warrant pertaining to Stephen Paddock and his girlfriend Mari Lou Danleys email accounts reveals Paddock was likely in contact with at least one other individual who helped plan the gruesome 1 Oct. massacre which took place at the Route 91 Harvest Music Festival where 58 people lost their lives from gunfire.

In the affidavit, F.B.I. Special Agent Ryan S. Burke requested that search warrants be issued based on probable cause for information associated with email accounts (Target Account 1 associated with Stephen Paddock) and (Target Account 2 associated with Mari Lou Danley).

The request explained that there was probable cause and cited the following violations A through D:

a. Destruction/Damage of Aircraft or Aircraft Facilities 18 U.S.C.A. 32(a);

b. Violence at International Airport 18 U.S.C. and

c. Unlawful Interstate Transport/Delivery of Firearms by Non Federal
Firearms Licensee 18 U.S.C. 922(a)(3) and

d. Aiding and Abetting 13 U.S.C. 2.

Special Agent Burke went on to confirm in the affidavit that such offenses have been committed by STEPHEN PADDOCK, MARILOU DANLEY, and others yet unknown.

Others yet unknown? Who are these other people and why has there been no mention of them by either Sheriff Joseph Lombardo or the F.B.I.? What are they hiding?

Emails suggest Stephen Paddock was in communication with an accomplice

According to the affidavit, Stephen Paddock sent an email to on July 6, 2017, which read: Try an AR before you buy. We have a huge selection located in the Las Vegas area.

Later on that day, an email was received back from (sent to Paddocks email account) which read: We have a wide variety of optics and ammunition to try.

Paddock eventually replied back to the email address, writing: For a thrill try out bump fire ARs with a 100 round magazine.

Clearly these back-and-forth communications are somehow connected to the attack but authorities and mainline reporters are now presenting it to the general p...

Danger lurks: Washington might torpedo Korea talks "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

There was near-unanimous welcoming of the surprise peace talks this week between North and South Korean delegations. Even the bellicose US President Donald Trump put aside his fiery rhetoric to endorse the diplomatic engagement between the two divided Koreas, saying he "hoped something good would result". The two Korean sides met for 11 hours of discussions in the "peace village" of Panmunjom near the Demilitarized Zone that has separated the states since the Korean War (1950-53). The cordial handshakes and friendly words exchanged raised hopes that a major breakthrough was underway - this after a year of mounting tensions and fears of an all-out war breaking out on the Korean Peninsula. Russia and China lauded the opening of talks this week - the first in nearly two years of impasse - saying it was exactly what they had been prescribing for the past several months in order to calm escalating tensions. The United Nations secretary general Antonio Guterres also praised the new commitment to dial down conflict. Perhaps surprising was the apparent welcome given by Washington to the talks. President Trump said he was "100 per cent" behind South Korean President Moon Jae-in's initiative to invite the North to dialogue.

Responsibility To Protect The World From United States "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

One of the most ingenious propaganda weapons ever developed is that the powerful nations of the Westled by the United Stateshave a moral responsibility to use military force to protect the rights of people being repressed by their governments. This responsibility to protect (R2P) always had a dubious legal standing, but its moral justification also required a psychological and historical disengagement from the bloody reality of the 500-hundred-year history of U.S. and European colonialism, slavery, genocide and torture that created the West. This violent, lawless Pan-European colonial/capitalist project continues today under the hegemony of the U.S. empire.

Executive Allegedly Paid Bribes to a Russian Official So His Company Could Win Highly Sensitive Nuclear Fuel Transportation Contracts

An indictment against a former co-president of a Maryland-based transportation company that provides services for the transportation of nuclear materials to customers in the United States and abroad, was unsealed today for his alleged role in a scheme that involved the bribery of an official at a subsidiary of Russias State Atomic Energy Corporation.

Acting Assistant Attorney General John P. Cronan of the Justice Departments Criminal Division, Acting U.S. Attorney Stephen M. Schenning of the District of Maryland, Principal Deputy Inspector General April G. Stephenson of the U.S. Department of Energys Office of Inspector General (DOE-OIG) and Assistant Director in Charge Andew W. Vale of the FBIs Washington, D.C. Field Office made the announcement.

Mark Lambert, 54, of Mount Airy, Maryland, was charged in an 11-count indictment with one count of conspiracy to violate the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) and to commit wire fraud, seven counts of violating the FCPA, two counts of wire fraud and one count of international promotion money laundering. The charges stem from an alleged scheme to bribe Vadim Mikerin, a Russian official at JSC Techsnabexport (TENEX), a subsidiary of Russias State Atomic Energy Corporation and the sole supplier and exporter of Russian Federation uranium and uranium enrichment services to nuclear power companies worldwide, in order to secure contracts with TENEX.

The Persecution of Julian Assange "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

We need a political intervention to make this situation end. He (Assange) is the only political prisoner in Western Europe.

Juan Branco

The persecution of Julian Assange, the founder of Wikileaks, is now seven years old. Ecuador has protected Assange for the past half decade from being turned over to Washington by the corrupt Swedish and British for torture and prosecution as a spy by giving Assange political asylum inside the Ecuadoran Embassy in London. Ecuador has now given citizenship to Assange and attempted to provide his safe transit out of England by giving him diplomatic status, but the British government continued in its assigned role of jailer by rejecting Ecuadors request for diplomatic status for Assange, just as the most servile of Washingtons puppet states rejected the order by the UN Committee on Arbitrary Detention to immediate release Assange from his arbitrary detention.

Assange got into trouble with Washington, because his news organization, Wikileaks, published files released by Bradley Manning. The files were a tremendous embarrassment to Washington, because they showed how Washington conspires against governments and betrays its allies, and the files contained an audio/video film of US military forces murdering innocent people walking down a street and then murdering a father and his two young children who stopped to give aid to the civilians the American soldiers had shot. The film revealed the heartlessness and criminal cruelty of the US troops, who were enjoying playing a real live video game with real people as their victims.

It was Manning who suffered, not the troops who committed murder. Manning was held for two years in conditions that experts said constituted torture while a case was framed against him. Some believe the harsh conditions affected his mind. Manning was convicted by a kangaroo court and sentenced to 35 years in prison, but Obama in an act of humanity unusual for Washington pardoned Manning.

Washington wanted Assange as well, and the chance came when two Swedish women who, attracted to Assange by his celebrity status, seduced him. The two women had not secured the cooperation they wanted from Assange in the use of condoms and, brainwashd by HIV fears, wanted Assange to join them in being tested.

Assange, misreading the extent of their fears, was too slow to comply, and the women went to the police to see if he could be required to be tested. According to the women, the police made up the charge of rape. The women themselves disavow the charge.

The charges were investigated, and the chief Swedish prosecutor Eva Finne dismissed the charges, saying there is no suspicion of any crime whatsoever.

The Slavery Of Scarcity Or The Freedom Of Abundance

Humanity is facing an epochal upheaval. We are leaving the fossil and nuclear age by leaps and bounds and are finally turning to the source of all life, of all energy and matter, the huge fusion reactor of our solar star. Billions of stars have been incubating, in successive generations since the birth of our universe 13.4 billion years ago, inside their hot hearts, from the initial hydrogen and some lithium, all the elements from helium to the heaviest transuranic elements and scattering them in massive explosions into space. The light of the stars shone through this cosmic dust and another miracle of creation happened: the encounter of light and matter led to the formation of complex molecules down to water and amino acids, the basic substances of life. It can also be said that the confluence of spirit (light) and matter (the elements in the cosmic dust) in the vast drama of the unfolding world created the condition for life. Then the holy gravity led to the formation of the planets, including our beautiful Earth. So we are, literally, children of the stars and the light (in each of us there are still molecules from the first proto-suns of creation).

From this interaction of solar photons and matter, step by step, the biosphere of the Earth plants, animals, and finally man emerged. Plants and animals formed complex biotopes, in which cooperations and synergies led to stable conditions despite the great differentiation of the most varied forms of life. Man also owes his existence to this ladder of mutual support. As an oxygen-breather, he could not have lived in the primeval atmosphere that was poisonous to him, lacking oxygen. When nature invented photosynthesis about 2 billion years ago, first photosynthetically active bacteria, then the leaves of the plants depleted the abundant CO2 in the air and split it into oxygen, which accumulated in the atmosphere and into carbon, an essential component in the biomass produced by the plants. The photons of the sunlight delivered the energy for this fantastic synthesis. We oxygen breathers now had the opportunity to live and populate the Earth.

With enormous arrogance, humanity considered itself the crown of creation, and clearly misinterpreted a central Old Testament p...


Top Rank at USPTO Goes to the Biggest Patent Bully, IBM "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Does the US want a patent bully as a flag bearer of its patent system?

Photo source (modified slightly): The 10 Most Powerful Women in Technology Today

Summary: With 2017 figures coming to light (and to the mainstream/corporate media), we scrutinise what has received the most attention and why its detrimental to the reputation of the US patent system

THE USPTO, formerly run by a former IBM employee (and current IBM lobbyist for software patents), does no favour to its reputation. David Kappos still working as a lobbyist contributes to the perception of revolving doors or brokering.

The latest figures from the USPTO reaffirm such perceptions; there were two angles in corporate media this past week, one being China/India (nationality) and another IBM (by firm). The firm behind the figures wrote that Chinese companies increased their US #patent count by 28% in 2017 from 2016.

Here is the original page and the press release that said IFI CLAIMS Announces 2017 Top U.S. Patent Recipients.

Michael Loney, apparently visiting Hong Kong this month, wrote: A record number of patents were granted by the USPTO last year, according to the 2017 IFI Claims US Top 50.

Trump cancels London visit... so much for the 'special relationship' "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Hardly anyone will buy President Donald Trump's explanation for his abruptly canceled visit to London next month. The real reason, no doubt, was to avoid embarrassing scenes of mass street protests marring his official welcome. Whatever has become of the so-called "special relationship"? Nigel Farage, the former UKIP leader and one of the few British politicians who has openly befriended Trump, expressed embarrassment: "It's disappointing. He's been to countries all over the world and yet he's not been to the one with whom he's closest. I think it's disappointing," Farage told the BBC on the back of news over Trump's cancellation. The United States and Britain have long flattered each other with declarations of having a "special relationship" - a phrase first coined by Winston Churchill during his postwar trip to the US in 1946. Given that Britain is America's supposedly closest international ally, what does it say about Washington's present standing in the world when the president is obliged to call off his visit - out of concerns that he's not welcome by the British public?


The 5 Stages of a Purge-The War On Whites Is a Prelude to Christian Persecution "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Ladies and Gentlemen, there are 5 stages to a purge of any people whether they be Jews, live in Rwanda, Bosnia or Serbia or reside in the United States.  America has entered on the path of a purge of white people. However, this initial purge is merely a transitional step to the persecution of Christians.

I have recently written a series of articles on the fact that the early stages of a potentially deadly purge are forming inside the United States. Some have questioned me and have repeated what I have said, the VAST MAJORITY of Latinos and Blacks would find any purge against whites to be reprehensible. Many would stand in defense of their white brothers and sisters. Therefore, we are not facing an all-out racial civil in America as most reasonable people, of any race, will not participate, except to stop it. I have a very close friend in which our friendship arose out of basketball coaching circles, who now works in the top level of Arizona State government. He finds this discourse to be vile and disgusting and will not stand for it. This person is part Black, Puerto Rican and Native American. He is angry about this movement because it is resurrecting feelings of racial hatred that had been minimized until people like Soros have come along and attempted to exploit any differences in order to bring the country down. However, this agitator, or a former Nazi collaborator, named George Soros who specializes in regime change on a national level, has white people in his crosshairs.  I think it is reasonable to assume that before Soros is done, Christian persecution will be the main focus of Soros and his globalist allies.

One of Soros tactics is to pit one group against the other in a classic divide and conquer scenario. In this sense, George Soros is the new Charles Manson and he has resurrected Helter Skelter and is trying to unhinge the country along racial lines.

Thousands of fish -- mostly white mullet -- have gone belly-up on the surface of Little Lagoon or washed up on shore this week, leaving behind an ugly scene, a terrible smell, and a feeding frenzy for birds who don't mind dead mullet, even if they're a few days old.

The cyber security expert and former NSA hacker Patrick Wardle made the headline once again, this time the researcher has spotted a new strain of malware dubbed MaMi designed to hijack DNS settings on macOS devices.

MAMI Malware

At the time of its discovery, it was undetected by all engines on VirusTotal. The OSX/MaMi isnt particularly advanced, but the researcher remarked that it does alter infected systems in rather nasty and persistent ways.

Since there are already several (IMHO unrelated) malware specimens that perform DNS hijackering (that are named DNSChanger, etc), I decided to call is OSX/MaMi due to a core class the malware named: SBMaMiSettings  wrote Wardle.

Ok, thats a wrap. OSX/MaMi isnt particular advanced but does alter infected systems in rather nasty and persistent ways. By installing a new root certificate and hijacking the DNS servers, the attackers can perform a variety of nefarious actions such as man-in-the-middleing traffic (perhaps to steal credentials, or inject ads). 

The malicious code acts as a DNS hijacker, but it also implements other features for taking screenshots, simulating mouse events, downloading and uploading files, and executing commands.

The researcher discovered the malware on several websites, unfortunately, it was not able to determine the distribution channel. It is likely the MaMi malware has been delivered via email, fake security alerts and pop-ups on...

Philippines: Huge Pay Raise for Killer Cops "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

 / 05:18 AM January 13, 2018

Beginning this month, the chief of the Philippine National Police, Director General Ronald dela Rosa, will enjoy a 79-percent increase in his basic monthly payfrom P67,500 to P121,143. Thats the combined result of the Tax Reform for Acceleration and Inclusion (TRAIN) Law that reduces personal income tax rates and Joint Resolution No. 1 that mandates a hike in the salaries of uniformed personnel. Both laws were signed by President Duterte this January.

Dela Rosas increase is only the third highest in the PNP ranks under the new scheme; police officers 1 will enjoy a 100-percent salary hike, from P14,834 to P29,668, while police officers 2 will get an 82-percent increase, from P16,934 to P30,867. All other police personnel will also see their pay increase by an average increase of 58.70 percent beginning Jan. 15, the PNP spokesperson, Chief Supt. Dionardo Carlos, announced in a press briefing.

Philippine National Police Director  Director General Ronald dela Rosa

A similar 100-percent increase in salaries will apply to military personnel, with new monthly rates now ranging from P18,587 for candidate soldier and P29,668 for private or police officer 1 to P34,761 for chief master sergeant or senior police officer 3, as this paper has reported. For higher-ranked personnel: The rates range from P35,456 for first chief master sergeant or senior police officer 4 to P121,143 for a general or police director general starting Jan. 1. Their pay will be adjusted upward to the range of P38,366 to P149,785 starting Jan. 1, 2019.

The hefty increases amount to a significant change in the compensation structure of police and military personnel, who, for far too long, have lived with meager pay, substandard materiel, lack of provisions, and many other privations. There is no question that soldiers who have performed heroically in Marawi City and elsewhere deserve to be compensated fairly and provided robust support.

No. People talk about the Crystalline Chambers but those are for the carbon-based elements. For our physical forms to be transferred to crystalline base that takes a minimum of three days plus, to have that transformation.

Those are the ones called Crystal and Light Chambers and they come with mentors. Actually the mentor comes prior to the Light Chamber because obviously we have to get our body to a position where our vibrational frequencies can go into the Crystalline Light Chambers. So the Med Bed come first. They serve different purposes.

When you take that kind of step and you go into the chamber and you make that metamorphosis you have a mentor before you even go in the chamber, thats going to help you comprehend and adjust to that transition.

Those that are awake enough are going to have a lot of questions and theres no race, its not like everybodys in a race and Im better than you and Ill get there before you do. Its just everybody in their own time.

Some people will be ready others will take a little bit longer to comprehend and understand and feel secure enough to go ahead and get in a Crystalline Chamber.

What Can We Learn from MLK About US Elections "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

By Richard Moser for Be Freedom - The scale of our problems are far too great. There is far too much at stake. The problems we face are dangerous, deeply embedded, institutionalized. There is no clever, cunning or purely tactical way of addressing them. Inside baseball and palace politics have failed. We are approaching a shift in the equation of risk. The dangers we face in making the big political changes are becoming less threatening than the dangers we face in continuing on the current course. Perhaps we are already there. Lets consider the core issues of power and social control in the US today: The Corporate Power is vast wealth wedded to political control. And, it rules America.

7 Protesters Arrested After Sit-In At Rep. Steny Hoyers Office "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

The protesters were demanding to meet with the Southern Maryland lawmaker about the humanitarian crisis in Yemen. A group of about 12 protesters gathered in Hoyers office Thursday afternoon and refused to leave. They carried photos of Yemeni children, and some had their hands painted red. They were motivated by desperation and frustration that people continue to die in Yemen, said David Bradbury, an Australian filmmaker who attended the protest. Years of war have devastated the country and about 75 percent of the its population is in need of humanitarian assistance, according to the United Nations. The Yemeni childrens poorest country has faced sustained bombings and famine. The protesters believed that Hoyer has not used his pivotal, crucial role in Congress to spur the necessary action, Bradbury said. Capitol Police spokeswoman Eva Malecki said the group was charged with unlawful entry.


Indian BJP Party Leader says: Get rid of fear and speak up for democracy like the four Supreme Court judges "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

NEW DELHI: Firing a fresh salvo at the government, disgruntled BJP leader Yashwant Sinha today asked his party colleagues and ministers to get rid of their fear and speak up for democracy like the four Supreme Court judges who came out publicly against the chief justice.

Yashwant Sinha

The former Union minister referred to the comments of the four judges to claim that the prevailing atmosphere was like the Emergency in 1975-77 and voiced concern over short parliamentary sessions.

If Parliament is compromised, the Supreme Court is not in order, then democracy is threatened, he told reporters.

Sinha said if four senior most Supreme Court judges say democracy is under threat, we have to take their words very seriously

Every citizen who feels for democracy should speak up. I will ask party (BJP) leaders and senior cabinet ministers to speak up. I will appeal to them to get rid of their fears and speak up, he said.

Sinha, however, insisted that it was for the apex court to sort out the crisis after the four senior judges virtually revolted against the countrys chief justice yesterday, raising questions on selective case allocation and certain judicial orders.

Like the Chief Justice of India in the Supreme Court, the prime minister is also first among equals in the government and his cabinet colleagues should speak up, he said.

Sinha, who has been a vocal critic of the Modi government over issues like demonetisation, GST and Kashmir, claimed that he was personally aware of the fear in which members of the cabinet in this government are working, and that also is a threat to democracy.

The BJP has in the past attributed Sinhas scathing criticism of the government to his being sidelined in the party with Finance Minister Arun Jaitley once dubbing him as a job applicant at 80.

Sinha was a cabinet minister in the first BJP-led NDA government and held finance and foreign affairs portfolios.

In his press conference, Sinha also rejected suggestions that politicians should not wade into the judicial crisis, saying when four senior most SC judges have gone public, it w...

Leaked retail box of Samsung Galaxy S9 reveals specifications "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Samsung Galaxy S9 retail box leak suggests single rear camera with variable aperture

Samsung recently confirmed that it would be announcing its most awaited smartphone of 2018, Galaxy S9 in late February next month during the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2018 in Barcelona, as opposed to speculations of it being unveiled at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) this January.

Now, an image of what is alleged to be the Galaxy S9 retail box was leaked by a Vietnamese website called Netnews, which has already been posted on Reddit. According to the packaging of the retail box, the Galaxy S9 will have a 5.8-inch 1440p Quad HD+ Super AMOLED display. It is said to feature a Super Speed Dual Pixel 12-megapixel rear camera with optical image stabilization (OIS). It will have two apertures: f/1.5 and f/2.4, suggesting that the camera could switch apertures depending on lighting conditions. It comes with Super Slow-Mo, which likely refers to something similar to Sonys 960fps slow-motion capabilities.

Also, included in this leaked spec list is an 8MP camera front camera, 64GB of storage, 4GB of RAM, IP68 water and dust resistance, an iris scanner, and wireless charging support. The handsets stereo speakers are tuned by AKG and will come with a pair of AKG earphones. The Samsung S9 is also expected to come packed with an unlocked FM radio chip at least for North America, monetizing on its partnership with NextRadio.

It is also rumored that Samsung will use a Qualcomm Snapdragon SDM845 processor. However, depending on the market and release timing, it is likely that the company may use the new Exynos 9810 chip.

We cannot confirm whether or not the packaging of the leaked retail box is 100 percent accurate, therefore, we request to take all of this information with a pinch of salt. However, with MWC 2018 already closing in, it seems very plausible that Samsung has already finalized the features of the Galaxy S9 and the box that it will ship in.

Moby Bizarrely Claims the CIA Asked Him to Push Trump-Russia Collusion Hysteria (AUDIO) "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

New York-based DJ, Moby, bizarrely claims the CIA pushed him to promote Trump-Russia collusion hysteria. In an interview with Kentucky radio station WFPK this week, the singer-songwriter said current and former CIA agents told him [Trump] is the Manchurian Candidate, like [Putin] has a Russian agent as the President of the United States. 

Video source: Kyle Meredith

Pitchfork reports:

Talking with WFPKs Kyle Meredith, Moby cited active and former CIA agents who were truly concerned about Trumps collusion with Russia. They were like, This is the Manchurian Candidate, like [Putin] has a Russian agent as the President of the United States, he said. So they passed on some information to me and they said, like, Look, you have more of a social media following than any of us do, can you please post some of these things just in a way that sort of put it out there.

He added, Its really disturbing and its going to get quite a lot darker. Like the depths of the Trump family in business and their involvement with organized crime, sponsored terrorism, Russian oligarchs, its really dark. I guess we should all, like, fasten our seat belts and hold on.

Moby claimed back in February that he was in possession of information proving the now discredited Fusion GPS dossier was indeed authentic.

The DJ also claimed the Kremlin was blackmailing President Trump. Hes being blackmailed by the Russian government, not just for being peed on by Russian hookers, but for much more nefarious things, Moby posted to Instagram in February of last year.

LED Stand For Lego Saturn V Boldly Goes Where No Lego Has Gone Before "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Hackers everywhere have spent the last couple of weeks building the remarkable Saturn V Lego models that they got for the holidays, but [Kat & Asa Miller] decided to go an extra step for realism: they built a stand with LED lights to simulate launch. To get the real feel of blast off, they used pillow stuffing, a clear acrylic tube and a string of NeoPixel LEDs. These are driven by an Adafruit Trinket running code that [Asa] wrote to create the look of a majestic Saturn V just lifting off the launchpad with the appropriate fire and fury.  They initially were not sure if the diminutive Trinket would have the oomph to drive the LEDs, but it seems to work fine, judging by the video that you can see after the break.

They also made a clamp that holds the tall model in place from clear acrylic to make sure that they did not, as they put it, unintentionally recreate one of those early SpaceX landings (you know the ones where it tips over and explodes).. Kudos to [Kat and Asa] on a neat build and a nice write up, but where are the speakers and sub-woofer to create the earth- shaking sound of the real thing?

Pine Cone within Holy Spirituality: Heaven within Delight Bonding Communion "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Prophecies happen inside, so when we say Earthquakes in diverse places, once a Christed enlightens from the inside out, the Light of the Christed Mystic stops supporting outer illusions of mirror-form as nothing outside remains in control over The One without any more Stockholm Syndrome sick loyal addiction to Physical-role separation from Christed Light.

Heavenly Delight vanquishes Earthly shadow illusions in timeless reverie, that seems like Earthquakes inside from the Mystical perspective of a Christed enlightening Indweller, so Once this happens everything that used to support the illusion of Maya outside begins to crumble away from the inside out.

Light doesn't fit in a shadow, so as an enlightened One begins to shine away all ideas of form, others become as startled as The One who now sees the futility of all Karmic gender drama. Others want to, Hell; need to destroy anyone who threatens form's shadowy fear of separation survival, totally vested in denial of toxic shame Karmic-increase shambles, we of the competitive Dark support with all the constant Glamor-din of Duality-clamor.

You can never have too many cancer-fighting spices in your spice rack

Thats why spices like turmeric, ginger, garlic and oregano should always be in your kitchen and used often.

But you should know theres a powerful, anti-cancer spice youve probably been missing out on all these years just because it may have seemed a little too exotic for American tongues.

And if you give it a try, you might find you like its spicy sweet flavor found often in scrumptious Indian and Southeast Asian dishes. But something you might like even better is its uncanny ability to switch off your cancer gene.

Indian long pepper provides cancer protection

The Indian long pepper is an important remedy in Ayurvedic medicine thats been used to treat a long list of health problems, including insomnia, anxiety, headaches, migraines, toothaches, digestive problems, lung problems and heart problems, practically forever.

And for years now, research has shown that piperlongumine has anti-cancer abilities. In fact, this unassuming pine cone-shaped fruit can help ward off prostate, breast, colon, lymphoma, leukemia, brain and gastric cancer.

All because it contains a cancer-fighting chemical called piperlongumine. But researchers from the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center recently figured out why its so effective


North and South Korea Discuss Olympic Cooperation "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

On January 9, high-level officials from North and South Korea met to discuss the Norths participation in the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea in February. The inter-Korean meeting was held in the village of Panmunjom at the border of the divided Korean Peninsula. On January 1, North Korean leader Kim Jong-un expressed hope for reconciliation with South Korea in his New Year address. The next day, South Korean President Moon Jae-in proposed high-level talks with North Korea ahead of the Olympics. Ri Son-gwon of North Korea and Cho Myong-gyon of South Korea the lead representatives of their respective states reunification committees led the talks. The two sides came to an agreement about North Koreas delegation to the Pyeongchang Olympics.


Americas Shifting Position on Taiwan Is Pushing the World into a Dangerous Crisis "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"


Its rather unfortunate that Murphys law stating that anything that can go wrong will go wrong applies to the world of international politics just as well. The conflicting positions of the US and China on a number of issues has already become a reason for rising tensions between the leading world powers. Yet, as its been noted time and time again, the ongoing Korean crisis is hardly the only matter that can lead to explosive and far reaching consequences. This is especially so considering the situation surrounding Taiwan.

To make matters worse, the US House of Representative has recently adopted the so-called Taiwan Travel Act which, according to Beijings Global Times, constitutes a fundamental change in Washingtons policy regarding Taiwan.

Should this legislative act receive approval in the Senate and then be signed in into a law by the US president it would mean that American and Taiwanese officials will be legally allowed to make official mutual visits. The Taiwan Travel Act was introduced into the US House of Representative two weeks before US President Donald Trumps inauguration, which means its unclear whether or not the text of this legislative act was approved by him personally, but its clear that it will seriously jeopardize US-Chinese relations if passed.

One can only add that the concept behind the Taiwan Travel Act reflects the position promoted by Stephen Bannon, who was the chief executive officer of Trumps presidential campaign before being appointed Chief Strategist in the Trump administration, the position that he had to abandon in mid-2017. Bannon was one of the totally anti-Chinese representatives in Trumps team which made him one of the most hated American political figures in Beijing, which is understandable.



US meddling, Kim's win & cryptocurrencies: Top 5 Putin quotes from his meeting with press "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Putin sat down with the heads of major Russian media outlets on Thursday. While he mostly commented on international politics, issues such as cryptocurrencies and the digital economy did not go unnoticed by the Russian leader. On who was behind recent attacks on Russia's airbase in Syria: We know who they are. We know whom and how much they paid for these provocations ... aimed at wrecking the agreements that have been reached earlier. It is also an attempt to destroy our relations ... with our partners - Turkey and Iran. We understand it perfectly well and we will act united.

Congratulations US Liberal Mainstream Media! You Are Now Considered More Biased than Pravda "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

It took a lot of time, hard work and treasure but they did it!

Today the US mainstream liberal media is considered more biased than any other country including the historic Pravda news agency!

They beat out Russias Pravda, China News and Aljazeera And it wasnt even close!

The US liberal mainstream media is today considered more biased than any others!

It took a year of looking for the elusive Trump-Russia collusion that really solidified it in the minds of Americans.
But they did it!

According to the latest Pew Research poll the US media is less trusted than media in any other country including Russia, China and sh*tholes like Haiti.

The Washington Examiner reported:

Americans on both sides of the political aisle believe the media does a poor job covering political issues fairly, according to a blockbuster new survey of media consumption in 38 nations.

Whats more, the Pew Research Centers study found that supporters of President Trump believe the media is doing a worse job covering politics than the supporters of any of the other international political leaders in countries surveyed.

Large gaps in ratings of the media emerge between governing party supporters and non-supporters. On the question of whether their news media cover political issues fairly, for example, partisan differences appear in 20 of the 38 countries surveyed. In five countries, the gap is at least 20 percentage points, with the largest by far in the U.S. at 34 percentage points, said Pew.

The survey found that just 21 percent of Americans supportive of Trump and Republicans believe the media is fair. Some 55 percent of those who dont back Trump also believe the media is fairly covering politics in the U.S.

In every other case, those numbers are flipped, said Pew.

This comes at the same time as James OKeefes latest book a critique on the liberal media.

Chhattisgarhs Sterilisation Deaths Have Changed Nothing For Family Planning Burden on Women "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Even after a gap of ten years between two government health and family surveys, the burden of sterilisation with all its risks  on women remains unchanged.

In 2014, eleven women died in a government sterilisation camp in Chhattisgarh where 83 women were sterilised in just about six hours.

In the year after that, the government collected data for its massive National Health and Family Survey-4 (NHFS), for 2015 to 2016.

The full data of that survey has just been released, and it shows that the tragic deaths in Chhattisgarh did little to change Indias population and policy choices: Female sterilisation is still the most used mode of contraception in India.

In the last session of parliament, three parliamentarians asked the health ministry whether the number of women opting for sterilisations is falling in the country.

The MPs were also concerned about whether women were being compensated when their sterilisations failed.

The next question was vague: Whether the Government has noticed any serious flaws in the population control policy.

To this last question, the government replied, No. The government said there were no problems with the National Population Policy because it was comprehensive and holistic. And thus the question does not arise, if the government has taken any corrective meas...


Oil Giants See Future In Offshore Wind Power. "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Transporting an offshore wind array from the factory floor to the ocean floor is no easy feat. Giant, specialized marine vessels must carry the blades and turbineswhich sit atop rigs hundreds of feet tallout miles from shore. Steel or concrete foundations are built to hold them in place, and underwater cables are laid on the seabed to transfer the power to land. One other industry has spent decades constructing and maintaining such massive energy infrastructure that can survive the storms of the open ocean: oil and gas. Now, with global demand for wind power growing, major oil and gas companies like Shell and Statoil are diversifying their portfolios by developing offshore wind, and the companies that provide services to offshore fossil fuel platforms are seeing a new market rising in their wake.

Spains Constitutional Crisis: No End In Sight "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

If Rajoy thought he would be able to begin 2018 on the front foot, returning Spain to normality and calm after the Catalan election that he arranged last month, he was very wrong

By Max Graham and cross-posted from Cable Magazine

In Catalan nativity scenes, there is a tradition of including a little porcelain doll in the act of defecation. This is known as el caganer which more or less translates as the shitter. A modern twist depicts the caganer as a topical public figure Spains Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy is frequently portrayed in this way. One could theoretically combine this with the Spanish phrase la ha cagado using the informal verb for defecating, to mean hes screwed it up. In the Rajoy doll, we have an apt metaphor for the outcome of Decembers Catalan elections.

If Rajoy thought he would be able to begin 2018 on the front foot, returning Spain to normality and calm after the Catalan election that he arranged last month, he was very wrong. Having gone to the polls in record-breaking numbers on 21 December, Catalans voted to restore a pro-independence majority to the Catalan parliament, albeit by a very narrow margin.

The result invites a question which has been asked many times before: what does this outcome mean for the key political actors, both in Catalonia and across Spain? This article will cast an eye over the key players and assess where they go from here.


The biggest loser after the December election is undoubtedly Mariano Rajoy. Not only did his party lose more than half its parliamentary seats (from 10 to 4), his gamble calling an election which , he hoped, would see defeat inflicted on Catalonias pro-independence parties backfired spectacularly. It is irrelevant that the nationalists majority has been reduced from 9 to 5 seats. Their parliamentary majority remains and thus Rajoy has failed.

He admitted after calling the election that he had no plan B for the post-election landscape. Xavier Garca Albiol, leader of the Catalan PP, supposedly offered his resignation to the Prime Minister in order to absorb blame for the humiliating defeat. Rajoy did not accept this, arguing that it was not an opportune moment for an internal contest, given the delicate situation in Catalonia.

The PPs desperation in encouraging Ciudadanos to try and form a government in the days following the election belies their fear of a nationalist coalition back in power. Rajoy is back to square one, and he knows it. The independence agenda still has considerable traction in the Catalan parliament.

This state of uncertainty relates to his own political position as well as to Spains unea...

My job "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

My grandson has reached an age where he will ask his daddy to call me so he can get on, he wants to share some news.

Its either a question and a quick chat, or it's to tell me that he is disappointed.  I coo at him and talk about being happy about something that he can do or look forward to.

His latest disappointment he cant make films and put them on youtube.  Both parents said no.  A definite 'no' from both of them.  He knows there are rules about online spaces, and some rules are non-negotiable.

My grandson is under 10 years of age.  I havent posted a photo of him for years, and what made it into my social media feed was blurred or taken from the rear.

He only watches shows with permission and is only on-line when under supervision.  He is a sensitive child in some ways, robust in others. He has a great sense of humour and he is smart as a whip.  

He got the idea of filming his own shows. Documents he called them. I twigged, he meant documentaries.

Nothing makes me happier than filming him and I am a willing camera person for our growing collection of family memories.

His subject matter for his first foray into screen time are his prized possessions. He has a lot of toys and books and things. So many things that we decided last Christmas we would stop buying him so many things. Hes given off signs for a while that the opening part of new things was fun, the playing with the item afterwards, not so much. Toys littered the floor and crammed shelves.  We started to narrow it down to, what do you really love? and then we shop accordingly....

If there is another increase this year in the number of stranded dolphins, the IWDG is hoping the post-mortem scheme will provide a definite insight towards the cause of dolphin deaths.

Sand-eating Lithuanian woman claims eating a 'mineral diet' cured her brain tumor (VIDEO) "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

An elderly Lithuanian woman, who claims to be living on a sand-only diet that has drastically improved her health, is sharing her helpful insights with anyone interested in trying this totally inedible fare. Talk about true grit. Stanislava Monstvilene, 70, from Lithuania claims she has been living for more than a decade consuming nothing but sand. The substance, known to be utterly indigestible, has not only made her healthier but has even cured her brain tumor, she claims. "I had a late stage brain tumor. They said I wouldn't last long. My hemoglobin level was 60 [some five times over the normal range]," Monstvilene told Ruptly. "I was passing by and once an idea came to my mind - take the sand and eat it. For the first time I choked but then I got used to it." As times passed the woman not only became accustomed to her new diet - she even developed an addiction for it. Although she has since overcome the uncontrollable craving for sand, she still swears by the mineral-rich "food," claiming she experiences health problems without it.

In a recent interview, Moby said his friends at the CIA asked him to take advantage of a greater "social media following" to spread rumors about President Donald Trump's alleged collusion with Russia during the 2016 campaign. Multi-award winning recording artist and activist Moby gave an interview to WFPK on Thursday to promote his new album, "Everything Was Beautiful and Nothing Hurt," but somehow ended up spending the last half of the interview talking about Trump and Russia.


California Is Preparing To Defend Its Waters From Trump Order "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

In its first act to shield California from the Trump administrations repeal of regulations, the states water board has prepared its own rules protecting wetlands and other waters. The proposed new rules, scheduled for a vote by the board this summer, could insulate the state from President Donald Trumps executive order to roll back the reach of the Clean Water Act. That rollback would strip federal protection from seasonal streambeds, isolated pools and other transitory wetlands, exposing them to damage, pollution or destruction from housing developments, energy companies and farms. When you look at it from a historical perspective, California has lost the vast majority of the wetland resources, said planner Paul Hann, who oversees the State Water Resources Control Boards wetlands protection program. We want to capture the rich diversity of wetlands across the state.


The true price of accepting Chinese cash Chinas debt-trap diplomacy snares our Asian neighbours "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

It wasnt long ago that local entrepreneurs in Sri Lankas remote Hambantota district were running white elephant tours of the sleepy towns Chinese-funded, multi-billion-dollar attractions.

They would start at the international airport dubbed the emptiest airport in the world and move on to the port with no ships, and finally the cricket stadium.

In symbolism not lost on the home team, wildlife officers were deployed at the last international match there in July to keep elephants from the ground.

What else was there to do but laugh at the obscene folly of former president Mahinda Rajapaksa who in 2009, flush with success from his brutal suppression of a 27-year Tamil insurgency, sought to cement his legacy in eponymous vanity projects in his home town of 11,000 people on the countrys southern tip?

When international lenders baulked at the project, Rajapaksa turned to the country least interested in his governments poor human rights and corruption record, and most eager to lend money: China.

Nine years on, and few in Hambantota or anywhere in Sri Lanka for that matter are laughing.

Last month, Hambantota Port was handed over to a Chinese state-owned company under a 99-year lease deal widely cited as a cautionary tale on the debt legacy of Chinese investment in Asia and the Pacific.

A very strong explosion seems to have occurred on the Stromboli volcano last night around 21:00 local time, friends of ours who are currently on the island of Ginostra, Italy reported. Thomas H. who at the time was in a house near the port (east side of island) wrote: "Last night, around 9pm, a very large detonation occurred at the mountain and the night sky was bright as day, even the window facing the sea towards the east was lit up... my girlfriend believed to hear rumblings from falling rocks, while I suspected this to be rather the sound of strong rain."


Surprise! Safety of childhood vaccination schedule still unproven "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Recently, an article by Joanna Nix was published in Mother Jones magazine titled "There is a Whole Cottage Industry of Doctors Helping Parents Skip Their Kids' Vaccines".1 The aim of the piece appears to be to attack and try to discredit physicians who exercise professional judgment and provide medical vaccine exemptions for children they conclude may be at increased risk for harm if they are vaccinated according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC) childhood vaccination schedule. Nix is uncomfortable with doctors who, according to her, seem "eager" to "flout the recommendations" of the CDC in the name of "parent choice."1 The implication here is two-fold. First, that such doctors are somehow irresponsible for exercising independent professional judgment when it comes to their patients and vaccination. And second, that the informed consent rights of parents to make important decisions for their children that involve medical risk taking are less important than strictly adhering to the CDC's one-size-fits-all vaccination schedule.

More #FakeNews: MSNBC Crank Incorrectly Claimed Ambassador to Panama Quit Over Trump Sh*thole Remarks "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Heres your daily reminder that ALL fake news from the liberal mainstream media is meant to hurt Trump.
It is NEVER the other way around.

On Friday MSNC crank Mary Emily OHara tweeted out that the US Ambassador to Panama, John Feeley, resigned over President Trumps mean words about sh*thole countries.

The story spread across the liberal media landscape.

Hours later OHara admitted the story was a complete hoax.

It NEVER happened.

Ambassador Feeley resigned in December.

Always remember the liberal media is against you, against Trump and against America.
Never Forget!

FOX News reported:

When word broke that the U.S. ambassador to Panama quit, one MSNBC producer jumped to connect the dots to President Trumps alleged profanity in a closed-door meeting.

The problem was, Mary Emily OHara got out over her skis and was forced to delete an erroneous tweet that blamed Trumps comments for John Feeley resignation. The diplomat had given his notice well before Trump allegedly branded certain impoverished countries sholes.

BREAKING: NBC confirms with the State Department that the U.S. Ambassador to Panama, John Feeley, has resigned because he can no longer feels he can comfortably serve under @realDonaldTrump. Feeley is the first U.S. diplomat to resign over the presidents comments, OHara initially wrote.

It was quickly revealed that Feeley resigned 24 hours before OHaras tweet, well before it was reported that Trump referred to some African nations as shole countries.

Will Taps Run Dry? "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Cape Town, home to Table Mountain, African penguins, sunshine and sea, is a world-renowned tourist destination. But it could also become famous for being the first major city in the world to run out of water.

Most recent projections suggest that its water could run out as early as March. The crisis has been caused by three years of very low rainfall, coupled with increasing consumption by a growing population.

The local government is racing to address the situation, with desalination plants to make sea water drinkable, groundwater collection projects, and water recycling programmes.

Meanwhile Cape Town's four million residents are being urged to conserve water and use no more than 87 litres (19 gallons) a day. Car washing and filling up swimming pools has been banned. And the visiting Indian cricket team were told to limit their post-match showers to two minutes.

Such water-related problems are not confined to Cape Town, of course.

Nearly 850 million people globally lack access to safe drinking water, says the World Health Organisation, and droughts are increasing.

19 insane details from James Damore's lawsuit regarding Google's office environment "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Employees were allowed to award those who spoke out against Damore's memo 'peer bonuses' monitored by the 'Google Recognition Team.' This article quotes communications that contain obscene language. The lawsuit James Damore filed against Google on Monday provides a fascinating glimpse into the way the company and many of its employees see the workplace in terms of a demographic hierarchy, and what happens to those who diverge from the consensus view. Details from diversity training sessions, accounts of alleged reverse discrimination, and screenshots of internal communications on company forums and message boards in the lawsuit cast the company culture as extremely hostile to employees with unpopular opinions, especially heterosexuals, men, white people, and those who hold conservative views.

Why Coercive Diplomacy is a Dangerous Farce "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Offering to talk while threatening military force hasnt worked in 30 years.

A North Korean soldier looks in through the window of the T2 building as Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Secretary of Defense Robert M. Gates tour the Demilitarized Zone in Korea on July 21, 2010.(U.S. Department of Defense photo.)

With his recent my (nuclear) button is bigger than yours taunt, Donald Trumps rhetoric has fully descended into school yard braggadocio, with North Koreas Kim Jong-un as a convenient foil. But his administrations overwhelming reliance on military and economic pressure rather than on negotiations to influence North Koreas nuclear weapons and ICBM programs is hardly new. It is merely a continuation of a well-established tradition of carrying out what the national security elite call coercive diplomacy.

As Alexander George, the academic specialist on international relations who popularized the concept, wrote, The general idea of coercive diplomacy is to back ones demand on an adversary with a threat of punishment for noncompliance that he will consider credible and potent enough to persuade him to comply with the demand. The converse of that fixation on coercion, of course, is rejection of genuine diplomatic negotiations, which would have required the United States to agree to changes in its own military and diplomatic policies.

It is no accident that the doctrine of coercive diplomacy acquired much of its appeal on the basis of a false narrative surrounding the Cuban Missile Crisis of 1962that John F. Kennedys readiness to go to war was what forced Khrushchevs retreat from Cuba. In fact, a crucial factor in ending the crisis was JFKs back-channel offer to withdraw U.S. missiles from Turkey, which were useful only as first strike weapons and which Khrushchev had been demanding. As George later observed, enthusiasts of coer...

Labour Unions Protest Against Tim Hortons Reaction To New Minimum Wage "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

TORONTO (CP) Protesters rallied outside Tim Hortons locations across Ontario Wednesday to show support for employees after some franchisees made benefits and break cuts after a minimum wage increase but many gatherers stopped short of committing to a boycott. Some, but not all, of the chain's franchisees have said employees will have to cover a larger share of their dental and health-care benefits as well as take unpaid breaks in order to offset the added costs of the province's hourly minimum wage rate increase to $14 an hour on Jan. 1. But labour groups who gathered outside stores in cities including Toronto, Ottawa and Coburg, Ont. Wednesday describe the company as wildly profitable and argue Tim Hortons and its parent company can afford to pay employees at the new rate without taking away previous perks.


President Donald J. Trump Is Stock Market King: Heres a List of All Time Records Since his 2016 Election Win! "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Guest post by Joe Hoft

President Trumps owns the Dow!  During his first year in office, which is not yet over, the Dow broke every significant record imaginable.  Below is a list of the records during President Donald J. Trumps first year in office.

Point Increases

Although President Trump has not yet been in office for a full year, his first year in office is already the greatest year in stock market history!

The Dow on Friday ended up again at another all time high closing at 25,803.  This is the 94th all time high in the Dow since President Trump won the 2016 election. 

Since the 2016 election the Dow is up more that 40%!  The Dow on November 8th, 2016 closed at 18,333. After Fridays close the Dow is up 7,470 points since the election.  This is the largest point increase in this amount of time in Dow history. This has never happened in the more than 100 years in the Dow.

* The Dow increased more in 2017 than any year ever in Dow history! The Dow ended 2016 at 19,763 and ended 2017 at 24,719 for a nearly 5,000 point increase. This is the most ever by more than 40% over the next best year ever (In 2013 the Dow was up 3,472 points).

* Since the 2016 election the Dow has surpassed 7 major milestones 19,000, 20,000, 21,000, 22,000, 23,000, 24,000 and 25,000.

* This past week the Dow set an all time record for the fastest 500 point increase in history (between major milestones) as the Dow surpassed 25,500 on Thursday.  The Dow took only 7 days to go from 25,000 (surpassed on January 4th) to 25,500 surpassed on the 11th.

The American fear machine is out of control "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

How soon before we start demanding dangerous solutions to our mass-driven anxieties? Fear has always been a tool of the vested interests to retain power, make money, and keep the masses under control. But now things may be veering off the rails. The old fears deployed by the nation's power centers during and after the Cold War-commies and terrorists-are reliably set, with the levers of power fueling and cooling down as needed. There's always been an element of manipulation at work, as evil and insidious as that is (think Condoleezza Rice's "mushroom cloud"), but it's been one that's maintained a strategic balance. You want enough fear to make people compliant, but not so much that they end up chasing each other-or their leaders-with pitchforks or driving cars through crowds of protesters.


MacBook users accuse Apple of overstating standby battery life "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

MacBook users claim Apple exaggerating standby battery life, resisting repairs

Recently, Apple was criticized by its irate users for deliberately slowing down older iPhone performances so as to get its loyalists buy its latest offering, iPhone 8 or iPhone X. Following the accusation, Apple apologized for battery-related iPhone performance problems and is now offering anyone with an iPhone 6 or later a battery replacement for $29 starting in late January through December 2018 a discount of $50 from the usual battery replacement cost of $79.

While Apple is trying its best to calm the situation, it appears that this time another product of there is having battery related problem. The issue which was highlighted by VentureBeat reader Nicholas Antoniou, who claimed that some MacBook laptops promising up to 30 days standby time are experiencing higher battery drain. The same has been confirmed in the Apple Support Community and other discussion boards. Even the Apple technicians seem reluctant to conduct thorough testing or fix the problem.

Apparently, the average daily power consumption should not exceed 3.3% of the battery charge when a MacBooks lid is closed for some time. However, some MacBook batteries are consuming between 2-10 times of the actual standby power, resulting in standby time of only 3 to 15 days. Some users claim that even when MacBook is shut down, the daily power consumption is still up to 15%, which is the normal behavior with the new hardware generation, according to Apple.

In the case of Antoniou, his 12-inch MacBook consumes 7% of power every day, which is over twice the expected amount, leading to what he describes as nearly zero charge after 10 days. Antoniou took his MacBook to an Apple Store, which was under the AppleCare extended warranty, where the technicians performed a battery diagnosis. However, the diagnosis didnt include the test for standby time, but yet the technicians claimed that the battery had cleared Apples tests and would not be replaced, Antoniou said.

When Antoniou contacted Apples CEO Tim Cook directly, he was contacted by Apples spokesperson Shane Barton, who told him that Apple had no problems with the battery, and even stopped the local Apple store from allowing him to pay for a new battery. When Antoniou suggested that there could be a widespread problem with Apple laptops claimed standby life, and questioned Apples refusal to honor the MacBooks extended warranty, he was allegedly told: If you want to get a lawsuit, come on!

According to Apple, its 12-inch MacBook battery performance when under active use, includes promises of 10-hour wireless web and 12-hour iTunes movie playback but it varies across machines. However, Apples claims of up to 30 days of standby time usually remains the same for all its laptops...


Swimmer bitten in fourth sea lion attack at San Francisco Aquatic Park in a month "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

A sea lion bit a woman swimming at San Francisco's Aquatic Park on Thursday in the fourth such attack in about a month. The woman apparently was not badly hurt, but authorities are worried about further attacks. A retired San Francisco firefighter also swimming in the bay around 7 a.m. helped the woman as she came out of the water, said Fire Department Lt. John Baxter, but the woman was able to walk on her own. She was taken to a hospital. Alice Ma said she and the victim are members of the South End Rowing Club, and that they were swimming together when the sea lion latched onto her friend and tried to drag her underwater. "It chomped down onto her," said Ma, who lives in San Jose. "It bit her and pulled."

Jason Westin And The Childrens Health Insurance Program "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Last year Blue America looked carefully at the race in the west Houston congressional district held by Paul Ryan rubber stamp John Culberson. The district, which went from a pretty red area with a PVI of R+13 in 2015 voted 48.5% to 47.1% for Clinton (after giving Romney a 59.9-38.6% win over Obama) and now has a more manageable R+7 PVI. There's more than one good candidate running for the nomination to take on Culberson but the best candidate with the best chance of beating Culberson in the general election is award-winning cancer researcher and doctor Jason Westin. Blue America endorsed him. Today we asked him to give us his perspective on the GOP sabotage of the Childrens Health Insurance Program (CHIP). Technically, Paul Ryan and his rubber stamps like Culberson have allowed the funding for the crucial program-- crucial for millions of children and their families-- to expire in September. Now states-- Connecticut and Colorado were the first two-- are starting to inform families there is no more money left for treatment. A new Congressional Budget Office report shows it would be effectively cost-free to fund the program for the next decade and Ryan has still done nothing. By the end of February half the states in the country will have no more money for the program unless Congress acts.

'Fighting season': Pentagon to send '1,000 new troops and drones' to Afghanistan "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

The Pentagon intends to deploy an estimated 1,000 new combat advisers to Afghanistan as part of the Trump administration's planned troop surge, according to reports. As early as February, members of an Army security-force assistance brigade from Fort Benning, Georgia, will be sent to work as combat advisers to Afghan National Security Forces. Their deployment will bring the number of American personnel in the country to about 14,000. US military officials told the Wall Street Journal the Pentagon hopes to dramatically increase the American military presence in Afghanistan in time for spring, when the "fighting season" begins. With operations against Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) winding down in Syria and Iraq, the US military also plans to send more helicopters, ground vehicles, artillery and other equipment to Afghanistan.

The text is written in an apocalyptic language that attempts to describe a certain imminence or desperation of the attack against the Internet, homologous to Russia with a terrorist and criminal organization.

Youre not a terrorist.

You arent trying to emigrate.

You arent a refugee who refuses to assimilate, who feels entitled to abuse his wife in any way he wants to, for any reason.

Youre not a member of the vicious MS-13 gang.

Youre not involved in child sex trafficking.

Youre not making anchor babies.

Youre not a pirate, a kidnapper, a street thug, or a drug dealer.

Youre one of the millions and millions of people who simply live out their lives where they are. You represent a FAR larger population than all the above categories put together.

You and your family call home a tiny shack in a large crowded city in an African country. Your family has existed in the throes of poverty and extreme hunger for many generations.

You drink water that is pumped directly from untreated sewage.

Garbage is strewn in the streets.

Riots and wars erupt from time to time, and so do epidemics, because no one in your neighborhood has a healthy body that can fight off germs.

All around the city there is fertile growing land, but most of it has been taken over by transnational agri-corporations.

I can predict with certainty that the last thing you care about is whether the president of the US has called your country a shithole.

Mobile App Flaws of SCADA ICS Systems Could Allow Hackers To Target Critical Infrastructe "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

IOACTIVE researchers warn that critical infrastructure mobile applications are being developed without secure coding compliance that could allow hackers to target SCADA Systems.

In a report released today, by IOACTIVE, researchers advice that critical infrastructure mobile applications are being developed without secure coding compliance that could allow hackers to target Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition Industrial Control Systems.

SCADA-ICS stands for Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition Industrial Control System, that represents the industrial automated systems operating on critical infrastructure. These systems are responsible for the control and operation of critical services like clean water and energy respectively. Researchers of IOACTIVE released a report analyzing the impact on the security of SCADA-ICS systems operating connected to the internet of things (IoT) and mobile applications.

The report states that mobile applications are present in many ICS segments and can be divided into two groups, Local (Wi-Fi, Bluetooth) and remote applications (Internet, VPN), which are exposed to three types of attacks such as Unauthorized physical access to the device or virtual access to device data, Communication channel compromise (MiTM), Application compromise.

SCADA-ICS infrastructure

Considering these attacks mobile SCADA applications can lead to Directly/indirectly influencing an industrial process or industrial network infrastructure and compromising an operator to unwillingly perform a harmful action on the system.

The research was conducted based on OWASP 2016 and analyzed 34 vendors that released the app on Google Play Store. The mobile app analyzed revealed that 147 security issues were identified related to secure coding programming that would allow code tampering.

The researchers noticed that hackers could gain remote control to smartphones to further launch attacks on ICS vulnerable app used on hardware and software. Also, the researchers pointed out that there was an increase of 16 vulnerabilities per application.

BREAKING VIDEO: Crazed Socialist Mobs DESTROY H&M Stores in South Africa Over Monkey Ad "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Crazed mobs of people belonging to a militant socialist political party called the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) spent Saturday morning vandalizing H&M stores at malls across South Africa over a monkey sweatshirt advertisement that the internet deemed to be racist.

The EFF is currently the third-largest party in both houses of the South African parliament.

A declaration from the EFF states that the party draws inspiration from the broad MarxistLeninist tradition and Fanonian schools of thought in their analyses of the state, imperialism, culture and class contradictions in every society.

The party has been repeatedly accused of racism against people who are not black.

We [the EFF] are not calling for the slaughter of white people at least for now, the groups president, Julius Malema, said during a political rally in 2016.

Malema has previously been convicted of hate speech for repeatedly singing dubul ibhunu, which translates to shoot the boer [white farmer]. White farmers in South Africa are currently being murdered at a rate that many are deeming to be genocide.

"I have a proposal for the economic teams of the ALBA: to assume jointly the creation of an oil-backed petro cryptocurrency, which will be supported with Venezuelan oil and that very soon we will sustain with the wealth of Venezuela's gold and diamonds," Maduro told the delegates of the Bolivarian Alliance for the Peoples of Our America-Peoples Trade Treaty (ALBA-TCP) on Friday. Meeting the high-ranking officials from Antigua & Barbuda, Cuba, Dominica, Grenada, Saint Lucia, Saint Vicente and the Grenadines, Saint Kitts and Nevis, Bolivia, Ecuador and Nicaragua, the President of Venezuela invited them to join him in overcoming what he had previously called a "financial blockade" imposed by the United States

Nancy Pelosi supports House passing Trump administration's bill to spy on Americans "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

With bipartisan backing, the House of Representatives passed a bill Thursday that would renew one of the government's most sweeping surveillance authorities for six years with minimal changes. The measure, which passed 256-164, reauthorized Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, which was set to expire later this month. The law was first passed in 2008 to legalize President George W. Bush's warrantless wiretapping program. It allows the National Security Agency to collect Americans' communications with people overseas, as long as the NSA is "targeting" the foreigners involved. The vote followed a morning of confusion, as President Donald Trump tweeted in opposition to the bill, referencing a conspiracy theory about then-President Barack Obama spying on the Trump campaign. He walked himself back two hours later, tweeting, "We need it! Get Smart!"


Association with a sex worker should not be a criminal charge "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Adam Lee has a good take on the believe women trope.

The call to believe women isnt an assertion that womens claims ought to be held to a less rigorous standard of evidence. Its a rejoinder to the sad reality that, for most of history, women were held to a more stringent standard than men and their claims were reflexively disbelieved.

Its also not a claim that women are incapable of lying. Its just that, in general, you should trust that people are mostly telling the truth, unless youve got good reason to doubt them, and being female is not one of those reasons.

Which means that when a porn actress, Stormy Daniels, says she did not have sex with Donald Trump, you should believe her, barring any solid evidence to the contrary. It is a non-story. At its worst it might be a tale of consensual sexual interactions between two people, one of whom is sleazy and repellent (its not Daniels Im talking about)but as long as its consensual, its only their business.

This is nothing but an attempt to harm Donald Trump, an activity I might approve of, by associating him with the unfair disrepute of sex workers. All it can do is further damage the standing of sex workers in general and Stormy Daniels in particular, to no good end.

And really, in a single week in which weve got Trump flaunting unmitigated racism and another rambling, incoherent, arrogant interview in the Wall Street Journal, dont we have better things to do?

Government Finally Admits Chemical Geoengineering Via Chemtrail Operations "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

After decades of denial, the US government uses the NIH to reveal the obvious truth

SOTN|  Since the very inception of the chemical geoengineeering programs, the U.S. Federal Government has repeatedly denied their existence.

Various agencies and departments within the government have actually belittled many investigative journalists and scientific researchers who have conclusively proved their existence.

Many truth seekers throughout the Alt Media have been the object of scorn for even broaching the subject.  Some have been intimidated by government proxies and/or threatened by private contractors for making their geoengineering claims and publishing their findings.

NIH Scientific Research Paper

Now we see that there was a scientific research paper published by the National Center for Biotechnology Information which is part of the United States National Library of Medicine, a branch of the National Institutes of Health.

The title of the paper is Assessing the direct occupational and public health impacts of solar radiation management with stratospheric aerosols and it can be found at the following link: US National Library of Medicine Posted Scientific Research Paper Acknowledging Chemical Geoengineering.

Even though this article was published in January of 2016, many in the anti-geoengineering community have continued to be the victim of hit pieces and propaganda, particularly on social media.  How does this even happen, especially when the government itself proclaims that chemical geoengineering is being conducted in the skies?

The sky doesnt lie

What is particularly galling about this ongoing predicament is that every chemtrail watcher knows with absolute certainty that toxic chemtrails are being discharged across the planet with a vengeance.  See the photos in the following link.

The Doing Business Index is being recalibrated "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

The World Bank repeatedly changed the methodology of one of its flagship economic reports over several years in ways it now says were unfair and misleading.

The World Banks chief economist, Paul Romer, told The Wall Street Journal on Friday he would correct and recalculate national rankings of business competitiveness in the report called Doing Business going back at least four years.

The revisions could be particularly relevant to Chile, whose standings in the rankings have been especially volatile in recent years and potentially tainted by the political motivations of World Bank staff, Mr. Romer said.

Over time, World Bank staff put a heavy thumb on the scales of its report by repeatedly changing the methodology that was used to calculate the country rankings, Mr. Romer said.

The focus of the World Banks corrections will be changes that had the effect of sharply penalizing the ranking of Chile under the most recent term of Chiles outgoing president, Michelle Bachelet.

I want to make a personal apology to Chile, and to any other country where we conveyed the wrong impression, Mr. Romer said. The problems with the report, he said, were my fault because we did not make things clear enough.

That is by Josh Zumbrun and Ian Talley at the (gated) WSJ.

Shocking Footage Shows Crowd Of Hungry Venezuelans Slaughtering A Cow In The Open "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

ZeroHedge| Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduros plan to order markets to slash prices of food an attempt to combat speculation and rampant inflation of the bolivar has apparently backfired as mobs of hungry Venezuelans have started looting supermarkets and slaughtering cattle in the open to survive, Reuters  reports.

Last week, we reported on near-riots that broke out in Caracas after the mandatory price cuts for food stoked widespread shortages as what little inventory that remained on market shelves quickly disappeared.

Venezuelans are suffering from a plethora of economic and social maladies.Four years of recession and an inflation rate approaching 4,000% by some measures have made the countrys currency practically worthless. Widespread shortages of food and medicine led to violent riots during the spring and early summer of 2017 that resulted in more than 100 deaths, including the burning alive of one suspected Maduro supporter by a crowd of citizens. Law enforcement in the capital and many of the countrys smaller cities has effectively disbanded, leading to a rise in lynchings and streets justice. Indeed, suspected thieves are sometimes killed.

Venezuelas regime probably wouldve collapsed by now if it werent for the aide of Russia and China, which have lent the Maduro regime money in exchange for a discount on future oil deliveries. But now that the price of oil is finally climbing again, Maduro could find himself rescued by commodity markets. In apparent anticipation of higher oil prices, the administration announced late last year that it would finally introduce the Petro a state-designed cryptocurrency that will help Venezuelas customers pay for their goods while circumventing the petrodollar system.

Dr. Derk Vissers Book About the European Patent Convention (EPC) Explains What Battistelli Has Done "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

The Annotated European Patent Convention

The Annotated European Patent Convention
The 25th edition, says the reference page, updated up until 15 November 2017, was published on 18 December 2017.

Summary: With quality of European Patents (EPs) and of EPO staff in rapid decline if not a freefall, we look back at the best-selling book from Visser, who warned that the Council/Organisation and the Office would have other priorities than the role of law if the Boards dont enjoy true independence (which they no longer do)

EARLIER today we found this British law firm promoting the EPO for assessment of patent validity; but people say that the EPO has become a lot worse/inferior even to the Spanish patent office (which isnt particularly renowned) and leaks have already shown that the EPO is not reliable for this kind of service because quantity is the mantra under Battistelli.

This has got to be a joke, but here is what they say:

In Europe, opposition at the EPO can be a cost-effective, time-efficient way to centrally challenge a granted European patent. There is a time limit for filing an opposition at the EPO, and if you miss that then each national patent derived from the European patent must instead be attacked individually according to national law. This can result in increased cost, time and effort compared to opposing the patent centrally at the EPO. Importantly, there is no estoppel in European National Courts based on opposition at the EPO.

What good is an assessment of patent validity that isnt a good assessment? Mr. Herrnst can deny to himself (and in private meetings) that Battistelli destroyed patent quality, but the reality is hard to hide (Battistelli last lied a...

When four senior-most judges of the Supreme Court took the route of a press conference on January 12 to express their great anguish and concern about the state of affairs within an institution that was the countrys last court of appeal, it was also an acknowledgement that the media, in a way, is also a court of last appeal.

Is US ceding Middle East diplomatic leadership to Russia a bad idea? "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Late this month Russia will host and broker a new round of Syrian peace talks in the Black Sea resort town of Sochi. The Sochi talks will be an extension of talks that had earlier taken place in Astana, Kazakhstan, under the joint sponsorship of Russia, Turkey, and Iran. If there is to be any diplomatic momentum in the weeks ahead regarding the Syrian conflict, that momentum most likely will be found in Sochi and Russia. Although some Syrian opposition elements are still hoping the United States will snatch diplomatic leadership on the issue away from Moscow, other relevant players regard Sochi as the place to be rather than a place to avoid. This evidently includes Saudi Arabia, a principal bankroller of the Syrian opposition, and United Nations special envoy Staffan de Mistura, who has had his own intermittent Syrian negotiations in Geneva. Russian officials describe their efforts as complementing rather than replacing the U.N. talks in Geneva, and they have expressed hope there will be another Geneva round before the Sochi meeting.


Pakistan 'betrayed' by Washington, will not seek any more military aid "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Pakistan's army chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa spoke with US Central Command General Joseph Votel on the phone and said he feels "betrayed" after recent actions by the US to cut military aid. He will not seek further funding. Bajwa made the comments to Votel earlier this week during a phone call, a spokesman for Pakistan's military said in a statement on Friday. Bajwa also said Pakistan is being treated badly by the US "despite decades of cooperation,"Sputnik News reports. The comment comes after President Donald Trump's administration withheld almost $2 billion in security aid from Pakistan for allegedly failing to take "decisive action" against Taliban militants targeting US personnel in neighboring Afghanistan, according to the Associated Press.


Britains National Health Service (NHS): No longer able to meet standards in its constitution "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Rising numbers of flu cases and more respiratory illness have placed intolerable pressures on staff

By Samuel OsborneAlex Matthews-King

The Independent Online
Health and Social Care Secretary Jeremy Hunt has been told the NHS budget needs to increase to 153bn by 2022/23 Getty

The National Health Service is at a watershed moment and cannot deliver care to the standards required by its constitution with the funding it receives, Jeremy Hunt has been told.

Chris Hopson, chief executive of NHS Providers, which acts as as bridge between trusts and the Department of Health, has written to the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care to call for extra investment on a long-term basis to address the fragility of the wider NHS.

The three-page letter calls for the Government to commit to increasing the NHS budget to 153bn by 2022/23  a sum the Office for Budget Responsibility said was needed, given projected increased demand for services.

But Mr Hopson has warned that, due to the current state of NHS finances, substantial progress must be made before the Autumn Budget this year.

Mr Hopson said: Despite planning for winter more thoroughly and extensively than before, it hasnt been sufficient. Rising numbers of flu cases and more respiratory illness have placed intolerable pressures on staff.

The NHS is no longer able to deliver the constitutional standards to which it is committed. We need to be realistic about what we can provide on the funding available.

If we continue to run the NHS at close to 100 per cent capacity day in, day out, permanently in the red zone, its not surprising that the service cant cope when we get a high, but entirely predictable, spike in demand.

Warning that failure to act would lead to targets moving further out of reach, he said: There is so much at s...

The new State Department classification sees countries divided into four zones, when it comes to personal security. Russia has been bundled into the "orange" category (the 2nd most dangerous of the quartet), meaning US citizens should "reconsider travel" to this destination.

Philippines: Polling Shows People Reject Idea of Revolutionary Government "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"


President Rodrigo Duterte had warned that he would declare a revolutionary government if things go out of control.
Presidential Photo/Ace Morandante, File
Ian Nicolas Cigaral ( January 13, 2018 12:44pm

MANILA, Philippines More Filipinos oppose the possibility of President Rodrigo Duterte declaring a revolutionary government, a Social Weather Station survey found.

Several times in his public remarks, Duterte has threatened to declare a revolutionary government a form of self-coup disabling the current government system and Constitution to quell a supposed conspiracy by his critics to destabilize his administration.

EXPLAINER: Can Duterte declare a revolutionary government?

But Duterte, in an apparent move to douse fears incited by his threat to revamp the government through extraconstitutional means, later called on the military to ignore talks about a revolutionary government.

According to SWSs fourth quarter survey conducted on December 8 to 16, 39 percent of 1,200 Filipino adults polled said they disagree with the establishment of a revolutionary government.

Meanwhile, 31 percent agree while the remaining 30 percent were undecided.

Based on the findings, SWS said opposition to a revolutionary government was stronger among those who are dissatisfied with, or have little trust in Duterte.

Nonetheless, Dutertes previous plan to create a revolutionary government got support from his home region of Mindanao with a net agreement score of +16.

That was followed by Metro Manila (net -7), Balance Luzon (net -16) and Visayas (net -17).

Net agreement scores are at single-digit across locale, class, and sex, ranging from net -9 to +4, the pollster also found.

Will Trump Turn Legislation To Help Taiwan Into Tools To Pressure China? "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Two Taiwan-related bills passed the House this week, and if they make it to President Donald Trumps desk they could become powerful bargaining chips in China negotiations. But how will that impact Taiwan?

The first bill is the Taiwan Travel Act, which is designed to encourage diplomatic visits between U.S. and Taiwan officials at all levels. The bill would pave the way for Taiwanese government officials to visit the U.S. and meet U.S. officials, including those from the Defense Department. U.S. government officials would be able to do the same in Taiwan. Its a huge deal, because such diplomatic visits from both sides have ceased after Washington and Beijing established a formal diplomatic relationship in 1979.

The second bill would direct the State Department to come up with a strategy to regain observer status for Taiwan in the World Health Organization. This bill is also significant because Taiwan lost its permanent seat and all representation in the United Nations in 1971, after the General Assembly passed a resolution to officially acknowledge the Peoples Republic of China (Beijing) as Chinas only representative. Since 1993, Taiwan has launched campaigns to regain some status in the U.N apart from Beijing, but has so far failed. This bill would mark a significant and official effort from the U.S. to assist Taiwan.

The question is, will President Trump will sign the bills into law if they pass the Senate?

An editorial in Chinas Global Times already warned of the likely risks should Trump choose to sign.

The era when the US dominated Taiwan-related affairs has ended. If the country finally passes the Taiwan Travel Act, then the act will be the full stop to that era. If Washington ultimately resorts to rolling out the red carpet for the Taiwan president in the White House to show its will against China, it is taking a huge risk. The mainland will surely act to make sure Taiwan and the US pay a price the Taiwan question is the Chinese mainlands bottom line that it cannot afford to touch.

What the Global Times didnt say is that the Taiwan question is also the bottom line of Chinas President Xi. If Trump is the ultimate nationalist in the West, Xi is the ultimate nationalist in the East. His whole political platform is about making China great again, which includes defending national sovereignty at any cost. Xis China dream is more than a set of economic targets.

Xi wants to see China achieve the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation by 2050. In Xis vision, such rejuvenation must include the re...


In Hollywood, Tweeting, Wearing Black, And Having Acne Are All Considered Brave "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Hollywoods virtue signaling and political posturing reached an all-time high this week. First, at the 2018 Golden Globes, actors and actresses patted themselves on the back for standing up against a movement triggered by the very problems they enabled. Sounding about as authentic as a sitcom applause soundtrack, the media sat there cheering them on, spending much of the week toasting celebrities for their fake bravery.

And just when you thought the world had used up all its courage and bravery for one week, the press declared Kendall Jenner brave for acknowledging some acne on Twitter. Its 2018, folks. Were changing the world.

Kendall Jenner Is Not Remotely Ashamed to Have Acne, and We Are Here for That, lauded Bravo, after Jenner had the guts to (gasp) reply to a fans encouraging comment about an acne breakout on Twitter. Kendall Jenner Just Gave the Best Response About Her Acne, added SELF. Kendall Jenner Shuts Down Acne Shamers After Golden Globes Appearance, proclaimed Huffington Post.

Lets be real: No one likes acne shamers, and no one supports sexual assault. But do any of these actions actually qualify as brave?

Jenner, like 50 million other Americans, apparently struggles with acne. Watching her reality show or looking at her Instagram account, however, youd never know. She clearly has millions of dollars and makeup, stylists and photographers to cover it up. There is nothing wrong with that, but when 49,999,999 other Americans are stuck being themselves, its hardly brave to respond to a tweet.

This type of flattery on behalf of the media is nothing new, but its increased exponentially as more and more people reject President Trump in favor of being woke. The 2016 election was a pivotal moment that changed a lot in our country. It brought not just a new administration, but a new rise in activism. This activism, predominantly by liberals, gets celebrated by their friends in the media, leading to more i...

New Book Blows the Lid Off the Dark World of Child Sex Abuse in Sci-Fi Fandom

Moira Greyland is the daughter of famous authors Marion Zimmer Bradley and Walter Breen. She has written a memoir about growing up in a queer family and suffering hideous child abuse. In The Last Closet: The Dark Side of Avalon, Greyland details the horror of being a helpless child trapped in a far left fantasy world.

What sets gay culture apart from straight culture is the belief that early sex is good and beneficial, and the sure knowledge (dont think for a second that they DONT KNOW) that the only way to produce another homosexual is to provide a boy with sexual experiences BEFORE he can be ruined by attraction to a girl, she writes.


Late on a Friday is a Good Time to Spread Misinformation About Unified Patent Court (UPC) Without Being Challenged "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Shoot first, ask questions later (then run and hide)

Bristows EPO

Summary: The new document from Winfried Tilmann et al (Team UPC) is being defended by Team UPC not only by publicly attacking UPC critics (like the complainant) but also blogs critical of the UPC

OPEN debates or communications are generally essential. Democracy necessitates those. So its a shame that in multiple blogs other than its own Bristows is deleting comments about the UPC (its own blog does not allow comments at all). Such is the nature of Team UPC; its insular, leaning towards censorship, and cryptic/secretive. Because if only the public knew what it was really up to

Such is the nature of Team UPC; its insular, leaning towards censorship, and cryptic/secretive.A couple of days ago we wrote about German UPC proceedings and we beat Team UPC to it, owing to pointers/tips from readers. This seems to have really upset Team UPC, which wanted to control the narrative of this release and treat a bunch of self-serving barristers as neutral or independent domain experts. Some people from Team UPC tried to heckle me publicly. They even use the word conspiracy (its not a word that I used). Maybe they try to associate truths about the UPC with conspiracy theory in order to discredit those truths. Whatever it is, all weve said was factual. They did not rebut a single argument. They dont care that the UPC is neither desirable nor legal nor constitutional. All they care about is what fattens their wallet. Some were throwing personal attacks at me and calling ad hominem my blog post that does not name anyone but Tillman (very briefly at the top). What are these people even hoping to accomplish? A few weeks ago we noted that they had already begun personal attacks on the complainant himself; all this while moaning that he was keeping his identity secret for a number of months (who can blame him, especially gives those personal attacks he must have foreseen)?

We urge readers to check this whole debate from start to finish; its Team UPC which operates like some sort of cult in secret events and funding that can sometimes be traced back to the EPO. Its them who habitually dish/throw insults at those who stand in their way.

We urge readers to check this whole deb...


Real eyes in a see of lies "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Ellis Taylor

This is an article written for my Dragon-nature-human healing blog, which is why their are references to it at the beginning.

There is a gathering realisation that this world is not as it should be.

Darkness is exposed in the light of compassion; which is why we are being saturated with the false light of ever-increasingly powerful, invasive, and addictive technology, to attenuate and redirect meaningful awakening, stalling humans from being roused in enough numbers, together, to actually do something seriously effective about this worlds, and this planets critical state.

There are countless issues but fortunately we are a species with endless abilities, and so able to tackle every problem, and on every level. We are, with this particular Y Ddraig Ffraed project, helping to heal a connection that is primordial and beyond powerful, and in so doing, as well, we uncover countless issues on multiple levels, giving opportunities for their mending as well.

When I am out with the Dragon the consciousness of everyone who is drawn to follow Her story is with me too. Every step we take with Her is dissipating shadows of ignorance and suppression, and we encourage each other, and others, as we have been encouraged, to let loose the chains to express our own talents and passions; the divine gifts we are given to light this world, and keep well, this planet.

We can do it; they, the disciples of darkness, walk a precarious and fraying tight rope. Any one more injustice or imposition could be the match that sends them, and all of their machinations into ashes, and they know it, so they tread cautiously

They also know that humanitys return to consciousness is inevitable, and make more plots and plans for that eventuality; including, for example, wheeling in their long-prepared and made up saviour botslike Oprah Winfrey, who has been there, is there, to capture the dont look and itll go way, light-trippers:

Vital, before that fall, they and the more observant among us know, is that humanity becomes aware of who they are, how this realm really operates and what their responsibilities in, and to, this planet are; otherwise, all well get is the same with another face.

Internet Identity Workshop

The Internet Identity Workshop has been finding, probing and solving identity issues twice every year since 2005. We meet in the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, CA. Every IIW moves topics, code and projects downfield. Name an identity topic and its likely that more substantial discussion and work has been done at IIW than any other conference!

More information on registering, venue, and hotels.

IIW Is More Relevant Than Ever

IIW was started to discuss what was then called user-centric identity and a look at the proceedings from past IIWs will convince you that topics related to user-centric identity are a big part of every IIW.

The recent interest in self-sovereign identity, blockchain-based identity, and related systems has pushed that conversation to a new level.

At the same time, IIW serves as a forum for working on the identity systems and protocols that make the modern Web work such as OAuth, OpenID Connect, User-Managed Access, and Fido, to name a few.

If youre interested in identity, IIW has sessions youll be glad you didnt miss.

Immer im Dienst der Finanzelite: Die Koalitionspolitik der SPD "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"


Ein Kommentar von Ernst Wolff.

Nachdem die SPD im letzten Bundestagswahlkampf das schlechteste Ergebnis seit der Grndung der Bundesrepublik erzielt hatte, verkndete ihr Vorsitzender Martin Schulz noch in der Wahlnacht, man werde in die Opposition gehen, um dort einen Erneuerungsprozess einzuleiten. Vier Monate spter haben Schulz und Co. in dieser Woche genau das Gegenteil getan und mit den Vertretern von CDU und CSU die Grundlagen fr eine neue Groe Koalition gelegt.

Die 180-Grad-Wende verwundert kaum noch jemanden, denn dahinter verbirgt sich eine politische Doppelstrategie, die die SPD seit mehr als einem halben Jahrhundert verfolgt: Nach auen als Partei der arbeitenden Bevlkerung aufzutreten, sich in Wahrheit aber bedingungslos der wahren Macht im Staat der Finanzelite zu unterwerfen und deren politisches Geschft zu erledigen.

The United States seeks to create new 'usable' nuclear arsenal "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

The Trump administration is set to violate the nuclear non-proliferation treaty with Russia by building up its stockpile of so-called "low-yield" warheads, according to a leaked draft of the Nuclear Posture Review (NPR). The review, which the Trump administration plans to roll out after President Donald Trump's State of the Union address later this month, will mark a break in policy with the development of a new class of low-yield, "usable" nuclear warheads. The D5 missiles, each costing approximately $66 million, will carry warheads more than 30 times the destructive power of the Hiroshima bomb. However, they would only include the primary fission section of the existing thermonuclear warheads with lower explosive yields.

The Trump administration is turning the State Department into a global weapons dealer "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

In the Trump administration, an agency started to promote peace is now fomenting war. The Trump administration will soon announce its next move in the ongoing assault on diplomacy and human rights currently taking place in the United States. Through a plan dubbed "Buy American," the administration is calling for U.S. attachs and diplomats to play a larger role in the sale of U.S. weapons, effectively solidifying their role as lobbyists for the arms industry rather than agents of diplomacy. This means the State Department, the agency that is meant to foster diplomatic relations and maintain peaceful engagement with other countries, will now openly operate as a weapons dealer. The administration is essentially forcing the State Department to undermine itself, as seeking out and expanding opportunities for increased weapons sales are certainly not conducive to fostering peaceful global relations. The "Buy American" plan will increase U.S. officials' involvement in facilitating weapons sales, while simultaneously easing rules that limit U.S. weapons sales to governments with poor human rights records. The move displays an increasingly undeniable truth-that the United States government views human rights not as the foundation of human dignity but as an impediment to corporate profits.

Economist says 'declaration of war' if US freezes Russian dollar assets "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

The Bank of Russia holds a third of its currency assets in the United States. The USA may impose sanctions on the bank. Earlier, the US had frozen the assets of the National Fund of Kazakhstan, which suggests that Russia's reserves may find themselves in a similar situation as well. Given the current state of affairs in the US-Russian relations, investments of the Bank of Russia in dollar assets look risky. However, should the Russian gold and foreign exchange assets be frozen because of sanctions, this will become a declaration of war, President of the Foundation for Economic Research, economist and publicist Mikhail Khazin said in an interview with Pravda.Ru. "About a third of the Bank of Russia's gold and currency assets are in the US. Can they be frozen due to new sanctions?" "Technically, they can be, and Kazakhstan is an example. Practically, such a move will be the declaration of war, and the declaration of war will immediately trigger a whole bunch of various problems."


If you hate socialism, then you hate the NHS "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Millions of people in Britain have allowed themselves to be conditioned into hating the concept of socialism by the toxic influence of the hard-right billionaire propaganda merchants.

The way they do this is by steadfastly ignoring the reality of what socialism actually means, and continually offering absurd caricature definitions of socialism like "spending other people's money" or "jealousy at other people's success" instead.

In reality socialism is about making sure public infrastructure and services (like schools, hospitals, public transport, the police and judicial system, libraries, roads, and energy infrastructure) are run for the public good, and kept out of the hands of private profiteers.

It's all about getting people to hate a ridiculous caricature of socialism, rather than explaining the political situation using accurate definitions.

The polling data shows that a clear majority of British people who express an opinion either way strongly support the fundamental socialist principle of public ownership when it comes to police services (96%), schools (93%), the NHS (89%), the Royal Mail (76%), the railways (71%), the water companies (70%), and the energy compani...


SOTT FOCUS: Trump Introduces New Word Into Mainstream Media Lexicon "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

The mainstream media isn't known for its truth-telling. Too much political correctness and a belief in 'less said soonest mended' has resulted in an institutional paucity of forthright and objective opinion, calling a 'spade a spade' if you will. But Donald Trump is putting an end to all that. While most of the mainstream media loves to hate Trump and takes great delight in excoriating him over his low brow and 'unpresidential' utterances, his most recent faux pas has been seized upon by leftist pundits across the board and indulgently repeated to the extent that we start to wonder if they aren't secretly thankful for the opportunity offered by the President to let loose and publicly say the words they always wanted to. For those of you that may have been out of the loop on the goings-on in the world (or at least the 'international community') over the past few days, just watch this short video and be assured that you are now up to speed.

3D Print a Home Automation Switch "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

If you are the kind of person who wont use cheap Sonoff modules to control AC powered devices, we dont blame you and you should probably stop reading now. However, if you dont mind a little exposed AC wiring and you have a 3D printer, you might be interested in the second generation of [530 Projects] in-wall light switch.

The 3D printed switch fits a standard box and uses the guts of a Sonoff controller. These work with all the popular ecosystems such as Alexa and Google Home. And they are cheap. Like, really cheap. If you already have a 3D printer, even counting the cost of the filament these are going to be a small fraction of the cost of a commercial switch. You can see a video about the device, below.

Of course, for the price you pay for a TP-Link or other WiFi switch, you get a store to return it to, certain assurances that it wont burn your house down, and you know someone to sue if it does. Those are probably all good things, but on the other hand, there are plenty of these modules around and assuming you know what you are doing, there is no reason to think they are going to explode, cause sterility, or any other bad things.

If it makes you feel better, you can see a factory tour these arent coming out of someones garage. Youve probably noticed that since these Sonoff devices have ESP8266s inside, they are highly hackable. In fact, he has some custom firmware he uses with the switch. Among other things, it lets you trigger a reset by holding down the switch.

Switzerland Bans Lobster Boiling Without Stunning or Killing Them "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

You can no longer boil a lobster alive in Switzerland, unless you stun it first:

The Swiss government has ordered an end to the common culinary practice of throwing lobsters into boiling water while they are still alive, ruling that they must be knocked out before they are killed.

As part of a wider overhaul of Swiss animal protection laws, Bern said that as of 1 March, "the practice of plunging live lobsters into boiling water, which is common in restaurants, is no longer permitted". Lobsters "will now have to be stunned before they are put to death," the government order read.

According to Swiss public broadcaster RTS, only electric shock or the "mechanical destruction" of the lobster's brain will be accepted methods of stunning the animals once the new rule takes affect.

Exposing the Dirty Deeds of Ukrainian Oligarchs "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

With money looted from the state and stashed in tax havens abroad, former Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych bought the largest log cabin in the world a $2 billion monument to corruption, according to an investigation by Al Jazeera.

Through dozens of contracts and court filings, Al Jazeera reporters mapped the circuitous route Yanukovych took to funnel $1.5 billion worth of assets to offshore businesses. A sprawling 95-page secret court document revealed that Investment Capital Ukraine (ICU), a Kiev-based financial group, facilitated the purchase of stolen government bonds on behalf of eight Cypriot shell companies all tied to Yanukovych.

Three Ukrainian oligarchs traded $160 million worth of assets held in one of these corporations, Quickpace Limited. According to an unsigned contract, oil tycoon Alexander Onischenko and real estate mogul Pavel Fuchs who has had dealings with President Donald Trump bought the company for just $30 million. A Ukrainian judge suspected the assets were proceeds from criminal activities and froze them before the pair could make a staggering profit.

The seller, billionaire Serhiy Kurchenko, is known among Ukrainian investigators as Yanukovychs family wallet.

Before he was toppled in the course of the Ukrainian revolution in 2014, Yanukovych and his cronies pumped illicit assets into Ukraine-based companies and then transferred them to offshore accounts. From there, the funds were redirected to a slew of shell companies in Cyprus, Belize, the British Virgin Islands, the UK and other countries.

Elaborate money laundering schemes have been a main focus of WhoWhatWhys reporting. One of our most-read stories of 2017 was an expose of Trumps business dealings with developer Felix Sater and the Bayrock Group, a real estate firm with ties to the Russian mob. More recently we took a close look at Deutsche Bank, a banking colossus tainted by charges of money laundering.

Summary: Darrell Issa, a man of patent reform in the United States, seems to be ending his political career and patent parasites are jubilant about it

Darrell Issa, who stood for PTAB and was repeatedly attacked by patent propagandists, will not seek reelection.

The news was barely notable enough for general news sites to cover. So who covered it? The patent propagandists of course

Watchtroll continues its political witch-hunts, this time against Congressman Darrell Issa, who promoted good patent reform.

The news was barely notable enough for general news sites to cover. So who covered it? The patent propagandists of coursePaul Morinville, who is a liar and patent extremist, also reared his ugly head, trying to push his Watchtroll lunacy into Patently-O which instead wrote: I received a funny email from Paul Morinvilles US Inventor group stating that Thousands of US inventors are applauding Rep. Darrell Issas decision to not run for re-election in Californias 49th district, and theyre hopeful his replacement will fix the job-killing problems the Congressman caused by weakening the nations patent system.

Nonsense. Liar. He could not even pull together a protest of more than a dozen people.

EU Empire Plans to Grow Even Bigger Despite Brexit & Other Existential Issues "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

The Non-Imperial Empire

In 2007, just before the EUs growth pains began, then European Commission president (and now non-executive chairman of Goldman Sachs International and advisor to Goldman Sachs) Jose Manuel Barroso proudly proclaimed the EU to be the worlds first ever humanitarian empire. Asked by a journalist what kind of a structure the 28-nation bloc is, Mr Barroso said:

We are a very special construction unique in the history of mankind. Sometimes I like to compare the EU as a creation to the organisation of empire. We have the dimension of empire.

Whereas superstate empires of old were built on military conquest, the EU empire is built on voluntary pooling of power, Barroso gushed. What we have is the first non-imperial empire.

In a similar vein Guy Verhofstadt, the European Parliaments Brexit negotiator, recently urged the EU to become an empire of the good and not of the bad in a speech at the London School of Economics.

Whether imperial or not, good or bad, the EU empire, like all empires before it, has an insatiable thirst for expansion. The blocs last major enlargement was in 2004 when ten countries acceded, including seven from the former Eastern bloc (Poland, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania), one from the former Yugoslavia (Slovenia), and two Mediterranean islands (Malta and Cyrpus), bringing the total number of EU Member States from 15 to 25. Since then only three new countries have joined, Romania and Bulgaria in 2007 and Croatia in 2013.

Now, instead of growing, the EU could be about to shrink for the first time in its history

Outraged parents prompt Paraguay to ban transsexual doll from toy stores "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Beneath her colorful baby attire, 'Bebe Mania' saved a special surprise for Paraguayan parents. A transsexual doll is causing pandemonium in Paraguay after outraging parent and pro-family groups to the point of prompting state officials to confiscate hundreds of boxes of the toy at the border. The doll, dressed in a variety of colors with a hair bow to match, is - at first glance - just like any other doll one might find in a toy store. But below her colorful baby attire, 'Bebe Mania' revealed her unique make-up when parents discovered male genitals attached to the doll's lower half. Toy stores carrying the ultra-progressive plaything on their shelves in the city of Este have now been forced to close their doors by Mayor Sandra Zacarias, who says it is against the nation's principles and will not be tolerated.


 Change should not be allowed to weaken the relationships so painstakingly put together across these British Isles.  "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

DUP Leader Rt. Hon. Arlene Foster MLA speaking at the inaugural Killarney Economic Conference this morning.

Whilst the referendum was a vote by the British people, the ripples that flow from the referendum result will be far reaching with long-term implications for people well beyond the shores of the United Kingdom.  And I appreciate and understand that nowhere will be more impacted by the United Kingdoms exit from the European Union than Ireland. 

I grew up only a few miles from the Fermanagh/Monaghan border.  I saw for myself growing up how, even during our darkest days, we shared close economic, cultural and social ties across the border.  My own grandmother used to travel back and forward across the border on a bicycle to sell Irish lace in Clones.  Those ties have strengthened since the Troubles ended to the extent that in recent times we have enjoyed an extraordinarily, unimaginably positive relations between our two states. 

I dont want to lose any of that.  The progress we have made together was hard won.  I lose none of my unionism by saying that I am proud of that progress. We should all be proud of initiatives like the Cancer Centre at Altnaglevin Hospital in Londonderry where patients from both sides of the border are receiving the treatment they need.  And whilst the UKs exit from the EU has the potential to test the progress weve made, it doesnt automatically mean that everything we have achieved is or will be undone.

I often think that Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland are like a semi-detached house.  The houses may look the same on the outside, but, inside, they look different and we do many things very differently.  But no matter how contrasting the interiors are, they are tied together and part of the same neighbourhood and what happens on one side of the fence inevitably has an impact on the other. I know that we are rivals in some respects, but in so many ways success for one of us is success for the other.  As we chart a new course for the future, it is not in our interests to see the Republic of Ireland do anything other than prosper.  Nor does it help any of us if we let the challenges that Brexit brings deflect us from the opportunities that will exist in the future.   We will continue to have our own identities and for our part we will no longer be members of the European Union, but our futures will still be closely connected.

The Democratic Unionist Party supported the UK leaving the European Union but in so doing Brexit is not a...

Israeli Army Warns: Danger of Violence Escalating Into War Is Growing "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

With eye on recent events, military intel warn of potential war Abbas may have backed himself into a corner Gaza threat looms over Israelis

The odds of a neighboring country, or one of the terrorist organizations operating inside of it, launching a war against Israel this year are almost nonexistent, according to the Israeli armys intelligence assessment for 2018.

Sounding remarkably similar to the 2017 assessment provided to the defense minister, the military noted there is not much left of the Arab armies, and Israels neighbors are mostly preoccupied with themselves, while internal problems are distracting Hezbollah and Hamas.

Is there any difference from 2017? Well, the danger of deterioration perhaps even to the point of war has grown significantly, Israel Defense Forces Chief of Staff Lt. Gen. Gadi Eisenkot stated. The intelligence branch and the chief of staff, who is beginning his fourth and final year at the helm of the army, are concerned about two possible scenarios.

The first would be the result of a reaction by one of Israels enemies to an Israeli show of force. The second would stem from a flare-up on the Palestinian front. When the terrorism genie gets out of the Palestinian bottle, it takes many months or even years to put it back.

The first scenario, which the army terms the campaign between the wars, might happen when Israel tries to prevent rivals from obtaining advance weaponry they might want to use during a future war, according to Eisenkot.

Time for nationalism to provide representation based on an expansion of the future for ALL the people of Northern Ireland "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

So Brians cartoon made the News Letters editorial yesterday. Ive only ever cited a leading article on a handful of occasions but this is worth noting

On one hand, its just a statement of what ought already to be obvious. But after a year of Sinn Fein propaganda, a lot of people seem to have been convinced that the strange disappearance of the Institutions of the Good Friday Agreement has no tangible cause.

Others uncritically take SFs line that we are in this hiatus because the DUP has not implemented certain matters that SF itself was jointly responsible for taking forward for most of the last ten years. So in all the talk of a language act (which wasnt agreed), wheres the language strategy (which was)?

For the DUPs part, particularly since the June election handed their ten MPs a spectacular whip hand at Westminster, behind the scenes they have continued to fulfill their obligations as best they could without a willing regional government partner.

For all the easy talk to the contrary at the time, there was no money for the Orange order or any other DUP pet project: that 1 Billion was negotiated carefully in order to align with a Programme for Government they had jointly negotiated with Sinn Fein.

In order to achieve that the DUP maintained contacts with SF separately to official negotiations to make sure they were briefed and informed as negotiations with the Tories progressed.

Opinion in Westminster is adjusting to the idea that the May government will spin this arrangement out to end of the fixed term in 2022. In that time, there are big opportunities and big threats to NI. SFs refusal to voice nationalist concerns seems calculated to maximise damage.

Early complaints raised against the DUP in the summer about the implications of this for Northern Ireland largely missed the point that after the Belfast Agreement there ought to be no need for the UK Government to interfere in the devolutionary settlement.

Russia deploys more surface-to-air missiles in Crimean build-up "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

MOSCOW (Reuters) Russia deployed a new division of S-400 surface-to-air missiles in Crimea on Saturday, Russian news agencies reported, in an escalation of military tensions on the Crimean peninsula.

Russian annexed Crimea from Ukraine in 2014, triggering economic sanctions by the European Union and United States and a tense stand-off in the region.

The U.S. said in December it planned to provide Ukraine with enhanced defensive capabilities, which officials said included Javelin anti-tank missiles..

Moscows latest deployment represents the second division armed with S-400 air defense systems on the peninsula, after the first in the spring of 2017 near the port town of Fedosia.

The new division will be based next to the town of Sevastopol and will control the airspace over the border with Ukraine, the RIA news agency reported.

The new air defense system, designed to defend Russias borders, can be turned into combat mode in less than five minutes, Interfax news agency quoted Viktor Sevostyanov, a commander with Russias air forces, as saying.

Russias defense ministry says the S-400 systems, known as Triumph, can bring down airborne targets at a range of 400 kilometers and ballistic missiles at a range of 60 kilometers.

They were first introduced to the Russian militarys arsenal in 2007, the ministry said.

Africa Calls Trump Racist After 'Shithole' Remark
Annum Masroor
January 12, 2018

JOHANNESBURG/LUSAKA, Jan 12 (Reuters) - African politicians and diplomats labeled U.S. President Donald Trump a racist on Friday after he was reported to have described some immigrants from Africa and Haiti as coming from shithole countries.

Trump reportedly made the remarks at a White House meeting on immigration on Thursday and a U.S. senator who attended the gathering said on Friday that the president used vile, vulgar language, including repeatedly using the word shithole.

Trump denied on Friday using such derogatory language, but he was widely condemned in many African countries and in Haiti and El Salvador, and by international rights organizations.

Ours is not a shithole country and neither is Haiti or any other country in distress, Jessie Duarte, the deputy secretary general of South Africas ruling African National Congress told reporters at a news conference in East London.

We would not deign to make comments as derogatory as that about any country that has any kind of socio-economic or other difficulties, Duarte said, adding that much like their African counterparts, millions of U.S. citizens were affected by problems such as unemployment.

Botswanas foreign ministry summoned the U.S. ambassador in protest and called the comments highly irresponsible, reprehensible and racist.

In a statement it said it had asked the U.S. government, through its ambassador, to clarify if the derogatory remark also applied to Botswana given that there were Botswana nationals living in the United States and others who wished to go there.

Senegals foreign ministry also called in the U.S. ambassador in Dakar to demonstrate its displeasure, a U.S. State Department official said.

The African Union (AU), an organization which promotes cooperation on the continent, said it was alarmed by Trumps very racist comments.

Given the historical reality of how African Americans arrived in the United States as slaves, and the United States being the biggest example of h...


South Africa's Cape Town may become first major city in world to run out of water "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

As the clock struck midnight on Jan. 1, residents of Cape Town, South Africa, ushered in 2018 - the start of a new year and the start of the city's stringent new water regulations. The Level 6 restrictions came into effect to combat an unprecedented drought which threatens to make Cape Town the first major city devoid of water. The slew of new measures include limiting individuals municipal water usage per day and threatening to impose fines on those who exceed it. They also reduce agricultural water use by 60 percent and commercial use by 45 percent, compared to pre-drought allocations. The drought and water stress across most of South Africa follows a strong El Nio in 2015 and 2016. The weather pattern - characterized by warmer-than-normal ocean water in the equatorial Pacific - resulted in extreme heat and spells of dry weather. Beneficial rain eventually returned in late fall for much of the country, including the drought-stricken western Cape.

Myanmar admits soldiers killed ten Rohingya "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Amnesty International has reiterated a call for an independent investigation into rights abuses in Myanmar's Rakhine state after the country's army admitted its soldiers were involved in the murder of 10 Rohingya. The remains of the victims were found in December in a mass grave outside Inn Din, a village in the Maungdaw township. In a Facebook post on Wednesday, Min Aung Hlaing, the military's commander in chief, said soldiers and villagers had confessed to killing 10 suspected Rohingya fighters on September 2. James Gomez, Amnesty's regional director for Southeast Asia and the Pacific, called the admission a positive development, but said it was "only the tip of the iceberg". It "warrants serious independent investigation into what other atrocities were committed amid the ethnic cleansing campaign that has forced out more than 655,000 Rohingya from Rakhine State since last August," he said on Thursday.

The 8th century Dormition Caves Monastery in Crimea is an example of the Orthodox tradition of carving monasteries into cliffsides, mountains, and cave networks. Many people in the West are completely unaware of the profound and otherworldly beauty of Eastern and Southern Europe, and North Western Asia. The cities, countrysides, and Orthodox churches and monasteries there are some of the oldest sites in Christendom, yet they are often unknown. Take, for example, Dormition Caves Monastery in Crimea. This is a monastery is built directly into a cliffside; some of its churches and cells are carved into the mountain itself.

Russia did it! Mother Jones claims Climategate and the DNC hack were both Russian plots "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Mother Jones thinks the Climategate email leak and the Democrat Podesta Email hack were all part of a grand Russian conspiracy to subvert the West. 7 Years Before Russia Hacked the Election, Someone Did the Same Thing to Climate Scientists "Why does this story sound so darned familiar?" REBECCA LEBER AND AJ VICENSJANUARY/FEBRUARY 2018 ISSUE One Saturday morning in June, two days after the president had announced his intention to withdraw the United States from the landmark Paris climate agreement, Michael Mann was tweeting about Donald Trump. Mann, a Penn State professor who is one of the world's most prominent climate scientists, was thinking about the daily barrage of revelations surrounding Russia's efforts to help Trump win the previous year's election. The hacked Democratic documents posted on WikiLeaks. The media craze over private emails that had been ripped out of context. Smear campaigns circulating on social media. "#Russia #Wikileaks #HackedEmails #Sabotaged #ClimateAgreements," tweeted Mann. "Why does this story sound so darned familiar?" Seven years earlier, Trump was riffing on a very different set of hacked emails. The real estate mogul had called into Fox News after a blizzard to declare that climate change was a hoax. Trump claimed that "one of the leaders of global warming" had recently admitted in a private email that years of scientific research were nothing but "a con." ... In hindsight, the Climategate hack, clearly timed to disrupt the Copenhagen negotiations, looks like a precursor to the hack that helped shape the outcome of the 2016 election. That's how John Podesta, the Clinton campaign chairman whose stolen emails were posted on WikiLeaks in the final weeks of the campaign, sees it. The parallels go beyond the hacks themselves.

Amid Protests, Irans Government Censors Its Critics With Chinese-Style Internet Control "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Late last month, as nationwide street protests entered their fourth day, Irans interior minister, Abdolreza Rahmani Fazli, issued a statement darkly warning that online social networks in the country were being used to create violence and fear. A day earlier, the internet as a whole had briefly flickered offline throughout Iran in what was widely interpreted as a government-engineered throttling. Following Fazlis statement, the government blocked access to the photo-sharing site Instagram, as well as Telegram, a secure messaging app used by 40 million Iranians per month that had begun to emerge as a key organizing tool for protesters.

The shutdown of Telegram and the brief closure of the internet as a whole are signs of the Islamic Republics increasing technical capacity to manage its citizens access to the global web. A new report by the Center for Human Rights in Iran, Guards at the Gate: The Expanding State Control Over the Internet in Iran, paints a grim picture of the Islamic Republics growing ability to control and stymie the flow of information online.

As in much of the developing world, internet use in Iran has grown exponentially over the past decade. According to figures from the United Nations, at least 53 percent of Irans population of 80 million people used the internet as of last year, including 40 million mobile phone users. This increasing public access to the web is partly the fruit of government investments in telecommunications infrastructure. But Iranians growing ability to share information and organize online also pose obvious threats to the authoritarian ruling government.

The Islamic Republic has responded to these threats in various ways. As the report documents, the governments effort to tame the internet has been centered on the creation of a government-controlled system known as the National Information Network. This system, the first phases of which launched in 2014, gives Iranian internet users preferential access to domestic websites and search engines. In practice, the NIN serves as something of a walled internet, in which content can be regulated and users can be monitored by state security agencies. The NIN also allows access to the real, or global, internet, but in a way that allows authorities to filter information, manipulate connection quality, and even cut off access when deemed appropriate.

The creation of a national internet infrastructure is not in itself nefarious. Part of what motivates a country to create a national internet is [the desire] to help keep internet traffic inside the country, which in many ways is what a healthy internet infrastructure should do, says Collin Anderson, a Washington-based cybersecurity resea...

Russia warns US not to abandon Iran nuclear deal "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, seen here with FM Javad Zarif, has said Iran is complying with the 2015 nuclear deal but that the US is trying to unravel it [Xinhua]

Russia has warned the Trump administration that withdrawing from the multi-lateral Iran nuclear deal would be a grave error.

US President Donald Trump on Friday extended the waiver on economic sanctions against Iran a key aspect of the 2015 Iran nuclear deal but said that this would be the last chance to renegotiate the agreement, which he said was terribly flawed.

The 2015 deal stipulates that US presidents must sign a waiver suspending the sanctions regimen on Iran every four months.

His statement was seen as a warning to the European partners (Five Permanent Security Council Members plus Germany) who negotiated the deal with Iran and the Obama administration at the time.

In the absence of such an agreement, the United States will not again waive sanctions in order to stay in the Iran nuclear deal, Trump said on Friday.

Russia, which played a key role in mediating the 2015 deal, says that any such move by Trump to scrap the deal would be a colossal foreign policy debacle for the United States.

Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov told the Interfax news agency on Saturday that Trump was heading toward a major failure of American politics.

Meanwhile, the Iranians have dismissed US pressure to renegotiate the deal.

The Islamic Republic of Iran stresses clearly that it will not take any measures beyond its commitment to the [2015 deal], nor will it accept changes to this agreement now or any time in the future. It also will not allow the [deal] to be linked to any other issue, a foreign ministry statement from Tehran said.

Samuel was sleeping in the temple of the LORD

The LORD called to Samuel, who answered, Here I am.
Samuel ran to Eli and said, Here I am. You called me.
I did not call you, Eli said. Go back to sleep.
So he went back to sleep.
Again the LORD called Samuel, who rose and went to Eli.
Here I am, he said. You called me.
But Eli answered, I did not call you, my son. Go back to sleep.At that time Samuel was not familiar with the LORD,
because the LORD had not revealed anything to him as yet.
The LORD called Samuel again, for the third time.
Getting up and going to Eli, he said, Here I am. You called me.
Then Eli understood that the LORD was calling the youth.
So he said to Samuel, Go to sleep, and if you are called, reply,
Speak, LORD, for your servant is listening.
When Samuel went to sleep in his place,
the LORD came and revealed his presence,
calling out as before, Samuel, Samuel!
Samuel answered, Speak, for your servant is listening.

Samuel grew up, and the LORD was with him,
not permitting any word of his to be without effect.

These are the fourteen Palestinian children Israel murdered in 2017 "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

These are the Palestinian children killed by Israel in 2017. Fourteen Palestinian boys and girls under the age of 18 were shot dead by Israeli occupation forces in the West Bank and Gaza Strip during the year. There were 21 fewer children killed than in 2016, which was the deadliest year for Palestinian children in the occupied West Bank in the past decade. In addition to those 14 shot and killed during 2017, a child died of wounds sustained in an Israeli drone strike years earlier. Another was killed by Israeli ordnance while grazing livestock. A baby living in temporary shelter, his family homeless as a result of Israeli bombing, died of cold exposure. Palestinian children also died because they were unable to secure permits to leave via the Israeli-controlled Erez checkpoint for medical treatment unavailable in the besieged Gaza Strip. Emergency room doctors were unable to resuscitate a seriously ill 9-year-old girl in the West Bank after Israeli soldiers denied her family passage at a checkpoint; a trip that normally would take 15 minutes took her family 90 minutes after they were forced to detour and go through a different checkpoint. No Israeli children were killed by Palestinians during the year. An Israeli woman wounded during a bus stop bombing in 2011, when she was 14, and who had never regained consciousness, died of her injures in 2017.

China launches more land-exploration satellites "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

China has launched dozens of rockets for weather, climate and agricultural monitoring in the past two years [Xinhua]

In its continuing efforts to increase the number of orbital satellites used for agricultural and weather purposes, the Chinese State Administration of Science, Technology and Industry for Self-Defense announced on Saturday that it had launched a land resources exploration satellite.

The satellite, which was launched from the Jiuquan Launch Center in the Gobi Desert, was carried aboard a Long March-2D rocket.

This type of rocket has been used in more than 260 similar space missions.

Saturdays launch comes just two days after China launched a pair of Superview remote-sensing satellites from the Taiyuan Launch Center in the north of the country.

The Superview satellites are capable of processing commercial images within 50-cm resolution and can be used by global customers surveying and mapping land.

They can also be used to monitor and warn of environmental hazards.

Since 1970, China has launched more than 100 satellites for weather and disaster monitoring, communications and navigation.

China is also developing the homegrown Beidou navigation network as an alternative to the US-run Global Positioning System.

Wal-Mart raising starting hourly wage to $11 and delivering bonuses in wake of US tax overhaul "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Wal-Mart Stores Inc. is boosting its starting hourly wage to $11 and delivering bonuses to employees, capitalizing on the U.S. tax overhaul to stay competitive in a tightening labor market. The increase takes effect next month and will cost $300 million on top of annual wage hikes that were already planned, the world's largest retailer said Thursday. The one-time bonus of up to $1,000 is based on seniority and will amount to an additional $400 million. The company is also expanding its maternity and parental leave policy and adding an adoption benefit. Wal-Mart, the nation's largest private employer, has fought in recent years to improve its image in the U.S., as it weathered criticism over its treatment of employees. With the wage increase and bonus payment, the company seeks to even its pay gap with resurgent rival Target Corp., while simultaneously sending a high-profile thank you to the U.S. government for slashing the corporate tax rate.


Archbishops and Admirals "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

What do you suppose the following had in common: the American President Abraham Lincoln and his assassin, John Wilkes Booth, the German Emperor Frederick (Friedrich) III, the author of Household Management, Mrs Isabella Beeton, the impressionist painter douard Manet, the post-impressionist Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, the gangster Al Capone, the composer Frederick Delius and the jazz pianist Scott Joplin, the Irish authors Oscar Wilde and James Joyce, the revolutionary Vladimir Lenin, the dictators Benito Mussolini and Idi Amin, the billionaire Howard Hughes, and the founder of the Daily Mail, Viscount Northcliffe? And, of course, Adolf Hitler. And countless multitudes, famous or unknown. In most cases the link is certain, in others it is compelling if circumstantial.

This story begins half a millennium ago shortly after Columbus had returned from the New World. An epidemic of a previously unknown disease broke out in Naples; its thought that it was brought back from the Americas by Columbuss sailors; a sort of tit-for-tat, or Colombian exchange, for the smallpox and measles that they had introduced there, and which had devastated a population who had no natural immunity. This new disease, if indeed it was a new disease, spread rapidly throughout Europe. It gained political notoriety; the Dutch at war with Spain, called it the Spanish disease for example, and others tarred their enemies in the same way.

Treatments then were as desperate as the disease. Mercury was a common specific, as a salve or by steaming in a cabinet. As a heavy metal, mercury is poisonous; its now uncertain how many sufferers died from the enthusiastic treatments rather than from the disease. It was said that a night with Venus led to a lifetime with Mercury.

It was the German pathologist Robert Koch who really established the germ theory of disease in the latter part of the 19th century, that tiny organisms rather than miasmas, bad airs or evil vapours were responsible for infections. It took until the early years of the 20th century before the spirochaete, Treponema pallidum, was identified as the organism responsible for syphilis. At about the same time, a blood test for syphilis, the Wassermann reaction, was developed; and, after testing hundreds of arsenic compounds, Ehrlich 606 or Salvarsan was introduced. Its a further sign of desperation that Julius Wagner-Jauregg introduced malaria therapy for syphilis; the idea was that giving patients malaria would raise their temperature sufficiently to kill the spirochaetes. He received the 1927 Nobel Prize for his work. Syphilis remains sensitive to penicillin, introduced in the 1940s. So ubiquitous was the problem that medical students were told to remember that the Archbishop was once an undergraduate, and the Admiral was once a mi...


Donald Trump Dims Prospects for Dreamers Deal With Crude Remark "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

President rejects bipartisan senators immigration plan with slur against African nations; danger of government shutdown grows

Updated Jan. 12, 2018 6:55 p.m. ET

WASHINGTONThe fate of young undocumented immigrants was in doubt and the odds of a government shutdown appeared to be growing in the wake of President Donald Trumps dismissal of shithole countries in Africa and his rejection of a bipartisan proposal to aid the so-called Dreamers.

As a deadline looms, senators had hoped Mr. Trump would back their immigration plan. Instead, the president on Friday lashed out at the deal, driving the parties further apart.

On Friday, two senatorsone Democratic, one Republicanconfirmed that Mr. Trump made the incendiary comments during a private meeting on Thursday to discuss legislation to replace the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, or DACA, which protects young people brought illegally to the U.S. as children.

Mr. Trump questioned why the U.S. would want to admit people from Africa. Why do we want all these people from these shithole countries here? We should have people from places like Norway, he said Thursday, according to people at the meeting.

Mr. Trump also said he opposed granting a legal status, in particular, to immigrants from Haiti. Haitians? Do we need more Haitians? he said, according to Senate Minority Leader Dick Durbin (D., Ill.), who was at the meeting.

Those comments drew bipartisan condemnation in the U.S. and scorn across the globe. The State Department directed U.S. envoys to listen to countries concerns and reiterate the respect the U.S. has for them.

On Thursday, the White House didnt deny the presidents comments, but Friday morning, Mr. Trump pushed back. The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used, he wrote on....

Merkel risks leading weak losers coalition for Germany "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"


dpa/AFP/File / by Deborah COLE | Observers say Merkel will lead a losers coalition with little power to tackle major challenges

BERLIN (AFP)  Germanys veteran chancellor Angela Merkel, often called the worlds most powerful woman, will embark on a fourth term with diminished influence and little vision for shaping Europes future, analysts say.After wrapping up more than 24 hours of talks Friday between her conservatives and the Social Democrats on forming a new grand coalition government, Merkel insisted the preliminary deal would break the deadlock in Germany and pave the way to a fresh start for Europe.

But before the ink was even dry on the roadmap for her new administration, observers branded Merkel and the team shes likely to lead a losers' coalition with little ambition or power to tackle the major challenges facing the country and the continent.

In fact this grand coalition is only a mini-coalition with just 53 percent of seats in parliament following the September election that saw both parties cede millions of voters to the far-right, anti-immigration AfD party, political scientist Karl-Rudolf Korte of Duisburg-Essen University said.

This compares with the lavish, nearly 80-percent majority the parties enjoyed during Merkels previous term, he told public broadcaster ZDF.

Court Expands Dutch Pirate Bay Blockade to More ISPs, For Now "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

The Pirate Bay is arguably the most widely blocked website on the Internet.

ISPs from all over the world have been ordered by courts to prevent users from accessing the torrent site, and this week the list has grown a bit longer.

A Dutch court has ruled that local Internet providers KPN, Tele2, T-Mobile, Zeelandnet and CAIW must block the site within ten days. The verdict follows a similar decision from September last year, where Ziggo and XS4All were ordered to do the same.

The blockade applies to several IP addresses and more than 150 domain names that are used by the notorious torrent site. Several of the ISPs had warned the court about the dangers of overblocking, but these concerns were rejected.

While most Dutch customers will be unable to access The Pirate Bay directly, the decision is not final yet. Not until the Supreme Court issues its pending decision. That will be the climax of a legal battle that started eight years ago.

A Dutch court first issued an order to block The Pirate Bay in 2012, but this decision was overturned two years later. Anti-piracy group BREIN then took the matter to the Supreme Court, which subsequently referred the case to the EU Court of Justice, seeking further clarification.

After a careful review of the case, the EU Court of Justice decided last year that The Pirate Bay can indeed be blocked.

The top EU court ruled that although The Pirate Bays operators dont share anything themselves, they knowingly provide users with a platform to share copyright-infringing links. This can be seen as an act of communication under the EU Copyright Directive.

This put the case back to the Dutch Supreme court, which has yet to decide on the matter.

BREIN, however, wanted a blocking decision more quickly and requested preliminary injunctions, like the one issued this week. These injunctions will only be valid until the final verdict is handed down.

NO-ONE should shed tears over Donald Trumps no-show for next months official opening of the new US embassy in south London.

For all his macho bravery as a keyboard warrior on Twitter, locked alone in his bedroom with his cheeseburgers, the US president has bottled out of a visit that would have laid bare the contempt people in Britain feel for him.

Not that he would have been in any physical danger, surrounded by his own security agents and the ranks of the Metropolitan Police, but every media chain in the world, especially the US-based networks he has abused as fake news, would have ensured global coverage of massed, hostile but peaceful demonstrations.

How could it be otherwise? He has spewed out a constant stream of hateful, racist and ignorant tweets and must expect correction.

Put simply, the US Establishment networks that incurred Trumps displeasure for backing Wall Street candidate Hillary Clinton would not be able to resist the temptation of pointing out, through sustained reportage, that the US presidents contempt for substantial numbers of people is reciprocated.

Hospital operations for child teeth removal increase in England "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Dentists have accused the government of having a "short-sighted" approach to tooth decay in England after hospital operations to remove children's teeth increased to nearly 43,000.

There were 42,911 operations in 2016-17 - up from 40,800 the previous year and 36,833 in 2012-13, NHS figures show.
The British Dental Association said England had a "second-class" dental service compared to Wales and Scotland.
The government said it was "determined" to reduce the number of extractions.
Doctors said many of the tooth extractions would be caused by the food and drink children consume and were therefore "completely preventable".

How Trump Wants To Fix The Iran Nuclear Deal American Four Step Plan "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Trump gives the world powers four months to remove loopholes in the Iran nuclear deal

By Amir Tibon (Washington ) Jan 12, 2018 8:34 PM

Image may contain: sky

WASHINGTON  U.S. President Donald Trump has decided to once again waive sanctions on Iran, allowing the nuclear deal with the Islamic Republic to survive, for now. Trump, however, has stated that this will be the last time he waives those sanctions, unless the United States and its European allies can find a way to remove loopholes in the nuclear deal within the next four months.

Trump said in a statement on Friday: Despite my strong inclination, I have not yet withdrawn the United States from the Iran nuclear deal. Instead, I have outlined two possible paths forward: either fix the deals disastrous flaws, or the United States will withdraw.

Irans Foreign Minister Javad Zarif responded to Trumps statement on Twitter, saying that it amounts to desperate attempts to undermine a solid multilateral agreement.

In a statement carried by the state-run IRNA news agency, Irans Foreign Ministry said the country will not accept any change in the deal, neither now nor in future, adding that it will not take any action beyond its commitments.

A senior American official said that one of the main issues Trump wants to see addressed is the sunset clause of the nuclear deal, which ends some of the restrictions put on Irans nuclear program within ten or fifteen years of its signing date. Trump wants to agree with Europe on an American-European agreement to re-impose sanctions on Iran even if it takes steps to renew some aspects of its nuclear program twenty or thirty years from today.

Thats the heart of the decision, the senior official explained. Trump will also demand Iran allow easier and more immediate access to international inspections of its nuclear sites. The administration emphasized that Trump also wants to see U.S. legislation stating that the ballistic missile program is an inseparable part of its nuclear program, and should be treated as the same in terms of American sanctions.

In his statement, Trump said that he is open to working with Congress on a bill that would leave the nuclear deal in place, but any bill I sign must include four critical components:

First, it must demand that Iran allow immediate inspections at all sites requested by international inspectors.

Second, it must ensure that Iran never even comes close to possessing a nuclear weapon.

Hawaii - Higher prevalence of tooth decay among low-income children "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

John Steinhorst/The Garden Island

LIHUE A Department of Health survey released in 2016 confirmed Hawaiis children have the highest prevalence of tooth decay in the nation.
That same survey, titled the Hawaii Smiles report, also showed a disproportionately higher prevalence of tooth decay among low-income children, especially those who live in Kauai, Hawaii and Maui counties. But there is still reason to smile, said a Kauai dentist.
Solving the problem of tooth decay begins with prevention and is a team approach that includes the dental office, the family and the community, said Dr. Alan Ing, owner of Kauai Dental Care.

Kauai Dental Care provides two fluoride treatments to young patients for free, even if their dental insurance does not cover this service. Parents and family members play an important role on a day-to-day basis in helping to prevent decay, Ing said. We teach children and parents the correct way to brush and floss, and tell them about the foods and drinks that promote tooth decay.

Matthew Shim, chief of the Family Health Services Division of the Hawaii Department of Health, said there are significant disparities in access to oral health services and, consequently, oral health that are well documented in Hawaii.

While these disparities are common in many states, they are magnified in Hawaii because of the geography of the island state, concentration of dental services on Oahu, and lack of fluoride in the water, a safe and proven decay prevention measure. As a consequence of these and other factors, Hawaii has a history of having some of the worst dental health in the country.

Candy and sweets are the obvious sugar sources that feed the bacteria in a mouth, but according to Ing, soda and juices, especially sports and power drinks high in sugar and acids, are common culprits in tooth decay.

Our community can also play a role in the prevention of decay. For example, coaches and parents can serve healthier drinks to young athletes, said dental hygienist, Nora Bernabe. Together as a team, we can all work to reduce the rate of tooth decay in our children on Kauai.

Despite ranking at the bottom of the nation for childrens oral health, Hawaii is taking steps to change the oral health status of Hawaiis children and has become a pioneer in teledentistry. Through a public-private partnership, the Hawaii Department of Health, Pacific Center for Special Care at the University of the Pacifics School of Dentistry, the HDS Foundation and others are using a virtual dent...

SHANGHAI: A Chinese salvage team recovered two bodies on Saturday from a stricken Iranian oil tanker, that was still blazing a week after it caught fire and was left adrift following a collision in the East China Sea, state news agency Xinhua reported.
The four members of the salvage team wore respirators to board the Sanchi, where they found the two bodies on the deck.
They tried to get to the living quarters but were driven back by temperatures on the burning ship of around 89 Celsius (192 Fahrenheit), Xinhua said.
The body of a mariner suspected to be from the ship was recovered on Monday and sent to Shanghai for identification. The rest of the crew, which included 30 Iranians and two Bangladeshis, remains missing.
The salvage team recovered the voyage data recorder, or black box from the bridge, before leaving the vessel less than half an hour after boarding because the wind had shifted and thick toxic smoke had complicated the operation, Xinhua said.


Game of Drones Researchers devised a technique to detect drone surveillance "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

A group of Israeli researchers at Ben Gurion University have built a proof-of-concept system against surveillance operated a surveillance drone.

Drones have created a new threat to peoples privacy. Anyone with a drone equipped with a video camera can potentially violate our privacy by streaming the subject in his/her private space over an encrypted first person view (FPV) channel.

Experts suggested many methods to detect nearby drones, but they all suffer from the same shortcoming: they cannot identify exactly what is being captured, and therefore they fail to distinguish between the legitimate use of a drone (for example, to use a drone to film a selfie from the air) and illegitimate use that invades someones privacy (when the same operator uses the drone to stream the view into the window of his neighbors apartment), a distinction that in some cases depends on the orientation of the drones video camera rather than on the drones location.

A group of Israeli researchers at Ben Gurion University in Beer Sheva (Ben NassiRaz Ben-NetanelAdi ShamirYuval Elovici) have built a proof-of-concept system against surveillance operated with spying drones that is able to determine whether a certain person or object is under drone surveillance.

The system first generates a recognizable pattern on whatever subject someone might want to guard spy on with aerial surveillance, then researchers remotely intercept a drones radio signals and scan the streaming video the drone sends to the operator scanning for that pattern.

In this paper, we shatter the commonly held belief that the use of encryption to secure an FPV channel prevents an interceptor from extracting the POI that is being streamed. We show methods that leverage physical stimuli to detect whether the drones camera is directed towards a target in real time. wrote the researchers,

We investigate the influence of changing pixels on the FPV channel (in a lab setup). Based on our observations we demonstrate how an interceptor can perform a side-channel attack to detect whether a target is being streamed by analyzing the encrypted FPV channel that is transmitted from a real drone (DJI Mavic) in two use cases: when the target is a private house and when the target is a subject.

The experts leverage the &#822...


Uber's Tool Ripley Let It Remotely Disable Staff Laptops "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Uber, like many companies that operate internationally, uses software to remotely disable its employees' laptops and smartphones.

As Uber has expanded -- opening offices in 78 countries worldwide -- sometimes local authorities have raided its offices. Police have wanted emails, documents and information on drivers and employees. It's happened in Paris, Hong Kong, Montreal and other countries.

In order to address these types of situations, the ride-hailing company uses software to protect its data, which is commonplace among companies that operate internationally. One type of software the company devised and reportedly used from Spring 2015 to late 2016 was called Ripley, according to a report by Bloomberg.

Ripley -- which was said to be named after Sigourney Weaver's character in the 1979 sci-fi movie "Alien" -- could remotely disable, lock or change the password on employees' computers and smartphones.

The idea was for Uber's team at its San Francisco headquarters to be able to shut down a device if necessary. The company used it at least two dozen times in situations with authorities in foreign countries, according to Bloomberg.

Uber said it no longer uses Ripley because it wasn't effective. It now uses an off-the-shelf software called Prey and another type of software it built called uLocker. Uber said this software is necessary to protect company data, along with the privacy of passengers, drivers and Uber employees.

[...] As for software like Ripley, Prey or uLocker, Uber said there's nothing secretive about it. It's basically the same software someone would use if they lost their smartphone.

"For instance, if an employee loses their laptop, we have the ability to remotely log them out of Uber's systems to prevent someone else from accessing private user data through that laptop," the Uber spokeswoman said.

Scientists say a fluctuating jet stream may be causing extreme weather events "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

A new study suggests that the polar jet stream has been fluctuating more than normal as it passes over the parts of the Northern Hemisphere, and that's affecting weather in Europe and North America. The jet stream is like a river of wind that circles the Northern Hemisphere continuously. That river meanders north and south along the way, however. When those meanders occur over the Atlantic and the Pacific Oceans, it can alter pressure systems and wind patterns at lower latitudes in Europe and North America. And that affects how warm or rainy it is on those continents. Researchers at the University of Arizona and the Swiss Federal Research Institute studied tree rings to get a fix on how widely and how often the jet stream meanders. Biologist Valerie Trouet took samples from four species of trees in Europe, including Scots pine, dating back to 1725. These revealed what kind of weather Europe had each year. And that helped them establish the normal pattern of the jet stream's fluctuations. What surprised the scientists was that the jet stream's meandering has become more frequent. "Since 1960 we get more years when the jet is in an extreme position," Trouet says, either in its northernmost or southernmost position. She adds that this pattern of more frequent, extreme shifts north and south has never been seen before in her 290-year record. Writing in the journal Nature Communications, the researchers say these more dramatic fluctuations may be responsible for some recent extreme weather events, not just in Europe, but also North America.

USA - Grant spurs fluoride debate in Bellows Falls "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

BELLOWS FALLS A grant awarded to the Bellows Falls Water Department to replace its water fluoridation equipment sparked recent debate among village trustees.
On Tuesday night, trustees tentatively voted 3-2 to accept a $14,170.85 grant from the National
Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO) for its oral health fluoridation equipment.
The Village Water Department was only one of 17 recipients of the grant, which is funded
through support form the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Brian Joslyn, chief operator of the Water Department, says the money would be used to replace
several pieces of equipment used in water fluoridation, the most expensive being a $7,000 online water analyzer.
Trustees were initially cautious. Given the concern surrounding fluoridating public water, they
quesstioned whether the grant agreement would require the village to repay the money should the
community decide at some point to stop fluoridating its water or not appropriate the money to
fluoridation at all.
I did get a copy of an agreement with another municipality that doesnt have a kind of obligation of that sort, Municipal Manager Shane OKeefe told the trustees, So, Im pretty confident that we would not be obligated to pay them back.
Bellows Falls has fluoridated its public water for many years. OKeefe recalled a debate about 12 years ago over stopping the pratice that ended with a decision to continue.
Some trustees say theyve received complaints from citizens opposing water fluoridation since the announement of the grant award.
Trustee Stefan Golec said he was contacted by two residents who said they planned to start a
petition in opposition if the grant was accepted.
A brief exchange occurred between Trustees Debra Wright and James McAuliffe over the topic. While Wright understands the external application of fluoride (e.g. toothpaste, for example), many studies point to serious health risks of ingesting fluoride, particular for people with high sensitivity.
McAuliffe expressed confidence in the scientific support and the work of the local water
[Having seen] the good [fluoridating the water] has done, particularly in a village like this, with our
demographics, to add rampant tooth decay to all the other issues that were facing would be a severe
burden, McAuliffe said.
Josyln told the audience his department has lowered the fluoridation levels from those in past
years, from 1.0-1.7 parts per million (ppm) to .50-.70 (ppm). The current fluoridation level is actually less than what I found when I tested my personal well, he said.
Golec, who voted to accept the grant, chaired the fluoride debate 12 years ago and expressed his
understanding for both sides....

Print a 200-million-year-old dinosaur fossil in your own home

CT-scan study makes it possible to 3-D print and study the skull of the dinosaur species Massospondylus that roamed South Africa 200 million years ago in your own home

January 12, 2018

The digital reconstruction of the skull of a 200-million-year-old South African dinosaur, Massospondylus, has made it possible for researchers to make 3D prints and in this way facilitate research on other dinosaurs all over the world.

Kimi Chapelle, a PhD student at the Evolutionary Studies Institute at the University of the Witwatersrand in Johannesburg, South Africa (Wits), has used the Wits MicroFocus CT facility to peer inside the skull of the dinosaur Massospondylus.

Chapelle was able to use the CT facility to rebuild every bone of Massospondyluss cranium, and to even look at tiny features like nerves exiting the brain and the balance organs of the inner ear. Her research is published today in the open-access journal, PeerJ.

Along with the paper, which is open for anybody to download and read, a 3D surface file of the skull is av...

UPU Leader In Bayelsa Lament Non-Appointment Of Urhobo Indigenes In Dickson Govt. "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Bayelsa State Governor, Seriake Dickson

By Amos Okioma
LAGOS JANUARY 13TH (URHOBOTODAY)-The President of Urhobo Progress Union, UPU (Worldwide ) Bayelsa State Chapter, Deacon Kingsley Eduvie Akpaka has lamented that despite the numerical strength and peaceful disposition of Urhobo resident in Bayelsa State, the Governor of the State Seriake Dickson had not considered them for appointment.
Akpaka made the statement when Udu Clan in Udu Local Government Area of Delta state under the aegis of Emo- Udu in Bayelsa state recently inaugurated a new Executive Council to pilot the affairs of the Association for the next four years and consequently launched its 2018 Almanac.
Thus, while pledging their loyalty to the state government, he averred that despite their numerical strength and peaceful disposition to their host communities and Bayelsa state government, the Restoration Government of Governor Seriake Dickson has not considered them for appointments, rather other non indigenous groups from far North, West , East were always given appointments.
During elections we always cast our votes in Bayelsa state. We wonder some ethnic groups whose state governments usually sent in buses to convey its people to vote at home, but when it comes to appointments they were always given priority

US Federal Court Asked to Stop MVP Pipeline in VA & WV "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Environmental groups try to halt Mountain Valley Pipeline in federal appeals court

From an Article by Brad McElhinny in WV Metro-News, January 09, 2018

CHARLESTON, W.Va. Environmental groups have filed a federal appeal to try to stop construction of the Mountain Valley Pipeline.

The groups filed a motion asking for a stay of the projects certificate of public convenience and necessity that was issued by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission. The motion was filed late Monday in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit.

The motion argues that the federal court system needs to act immediately to stop irreparable environmental harm that would occur once construction of the natural gas pipeline begins. The motion to stay contends property owners along the pipelines path would suffer damage to their property and lifestyles.

Petitioners, whose members reside near, recreate on, and own land that will be taken and degraded by the MVP, seek the stay to prevent irreparable injury to their property, environmental, aesthetic, and recreational interests pending the Courts review.

The motion contends FERCs didnt critically evaluate the purpose and need for the MVP. The environmental groups also contend FERC lacked substantial evidence to support its finding of public convenience and necessity.

It aims to stop tree clearing and other construction that could start as soon as February 1: Once private property is taken, mature trees are cut, steep slopes denuded, wetlands filled, trenches dug, and a high-pressure large-diameter pipeline is laid and filled with gas, the court can no longer restore the status quo, the motion states.

MORE: Read the MVP Motion to Stay.

The pipeline developers wrote in a recent court filing that they need access to all the property no later than Feb. 1 to comply with a window for tree clearing required by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.

The federal appeal was filed by attorneys for Appalachian Mountain Advocates on behalf of several other environmental organizations: Appalachian Voices, the Chesapeake Cl...

Inexpensive Display Jumps to Life "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

If youve ever been to a local fair or amusement park, chances are youve seen an illusion known as Peppers Ghost. To perform the illusion, essentially all thats needed is a thin sheet of plastic or one-way mirror and a light source. Get it right, and youll have apparitions popping up in all kinds of interesting places. With just the right software, though, one of those places could be in your own 3D display.

Using just a tablet and a sheet of plastic rolled into a cone, a three-person team was able to create a 3D display using the Peppers Ghost illusion. Using special software that the team developed, an image is altered so that when it reflects off of the plastic cone the image appears as a 3D rendering of the original picture. The rendering is perspective-correct and offers a novel way to interact with a 3D model without needing expensive equipment or special glasses.

If you do have some fancy equipment sitting around, like a computer monitor and some plexiglass, similar 3D displays have been made which utilize similar effects. Right now the team that developed this one havent made their code open yet, but have promised to release it soon so that others can build their own displays.

Thanks to [bmsleight] for the tip!

Donald Trump defeated by British protesters "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

This video from the USA says about itself:

12 January 2018

World leaders are responding to Trumps shithole countries comment. John Iadarola, Jimmy Dore, and Ron Placone, the hosts of The Young Turks, break it down.

JOHANNESBURG (AP) Africans woke up on Friday to find President Donald Trump had finally taken an interest in their continent. It wasnt what people had hoped for. Using vulgar language, Trump on Thursday questioned why the U.S. would accept more immigrants from Haiti and shithole countries in Africa rather than places like Norway in rejecting a bipartisan immigration deal.

The African Union continental body told The Associated Press it was frankly alarmed by Trumps comments. Given the historical reality of how many Africans arrived in the United States as slaves, this statement flies in the face of all accepted behavior and practice, AU spokeswoman Ebba Kalondo said. This is particularly surprising as the United States of America remains a global example of how migration gave birth to a nation built on strong values of diversity and opportunity.

African governments quickly found themselves in an awkward position. As top recipients of U.S. aid, some hesitated to jeopardize it by criticizing Trump, especially as his administration has sought to slash foreign assistance.

The Economic Consequences of Racism "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Why Racism Dooms Societies (Like America) to Decline and Fall

I read a tweet this morning, in response to the Presidents notorious shithole comments, from a die-hard, longtime Republican luminary: This overt racism degrades our discourse!! Its a disgrace!! I laughed, rolled my eyes, and thought, No, friend. It is covert racism, systematized, structural, endemic, chronic, that led inevitably to the need for a tyrant, who now degrades your discourse.

Let me unpack all that. Why is racism (or any kind of prejudice, bigotry, misogyny, etcetera) undesirable, anywaysbeyond the obvious reasons of moral and spiritual repugnance, which we will return to? Well, the answer to that question is also the story of American decline.

America was segregated until 1971 or thereabout. Today, it is still one of the most racist societies in the world. Any indicator you chooseincome, savings, life expectancy, any aspect of well-beingis dramatically lower for some groups than for others. Black wealth is close to zero. Racism is not a problem America solved. It is not one Americans even came close to reckoning withit is problem that Americans pretend dont exist, to ease the shame of its lingering scars, and so a reckoning is put off every day. So why should anyone be shocked that the President of one of the worlds most racist countries is a flamboyant racist?

The performative outrage of leaders, left and right, doesnt help. It is a denial of the problem, instead of an understanding of it. I read many more tweets from politicians on both sides that said, In America, we judge people by their ideas, not the color of their skin!, and so on. Would that it were true. I would like to live in such a society. But America is clearly not (even anywhere remotely near) oneit is more like a mostly segregated society pretending not to be one. The point is not that you are implicated. That is for you to decide. It is to establish that the subject of this essay, racism, is something we should all know exists, but most of us deny, at precisely the moment we must acknowledge its existence most fullyif we wish to ever reckon with it.

Why should we reckon with it? Well, happens if a society is racist?

The first consequence is that cannot ever really develop public goods. Why should I pay for their school, roads, healthcare? They are filthy, lazy beingsbarely even people!, cry the racistsor at least vote that way. But if that kind of toxic racist belief is the norm, that exists in a majority, then a whole society must go without the full array of public goods, because those goods must be had by all, or none at all. And that is precisely why Americans today dont have decent healthcare, education, media, transport, finan...

End Triple Discrimination against Indigenous Women "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Human Wrongs Watch

Mexico City Progress in the fight against hunger and extreme poverty hinges on eliminating the triple discrimination faced by indigenous women, FAO Director-General Jose Graziano da Silva on 12 January 2018 said.

Indigenous women face far higher rates of poverty, chronic malnutrition and illiteracy as well as low access to health care and participation in political life, Graziano da Silva told participants from a dozen countries at the Forum on Indigenous Women in Mexicos capital.

Some 370 million people about five percent of the global population and 15 percent of the worlds poorest self-identify as indigenous.

In Latin America and the Caribbean region, approximately 45 million indigenous peoples account for 8.3 percent of the population but 15 percent of those facing food insecurity and extreme poverty.

Indigenous women in the region face higher poverty and malnutrition rates than any other social group, and typically earn four times less than men, according to FAOs new regional atlas or rural women.

Globally the situation is even worse for women members of the more than 5,000 indigenous  groups around the world, who speak more than half the worlds languages and spread across more than 90 countries.

Fight against hunger and poverty requires empowering indigenous women at home and everywhere

Indigenous women face a triple discrimination comprising poverty, gender and ethnicity both within and outside their communities, making them highly vulnerable, Graziano da Silva said.

All four of them looked so human, so vulnerable, so concerned and sincere, as well as so unfamiliar with the rough, chaotic rituals of a press conference; yet, the four senior-most judges did manage to produce an illuminatingly flagellant moment in Indian judiciary history, reminiscent of the day when Babu Jagjivan Ram and Hemvati Nandan Bahuguna walked out on Indira Gandhi in 1977. Indian politics changed that afternoon; the higher judiciary would not be the same after the extraordinary Friday the 12th.

The Supreme Court thrives on traditions, conventions, procedures and protocols; its operating principles and working habits have been anchored in anonymity, distance and detachment. It is these entrenched traditions and sanctified etiquette that enable even a lesser judicial mind to raise his game and to acquire for himself a patina of superior wisdom and judicial rectitude. Like any other institution, the Supreme Court too has evolved its own in-...

Human Wrongs Watch

Amid reports that some 160 people are feared lost during desperate attempts to cross the Mediterranean this week alone, the United Nations refugee agency on 12 January 2018  called for more action to save lives by offering more resettlement places and safe alternatives for people on the move.

[We] have been advocating for a comprehensive approach to address movements of migrants and refugees who embark on perilous journeys across the Sahara Desert and the Mediterranean, William Spindler, a spokesperson for the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), told the press in Geneva.

The approach, he outlined, should include building and strengthening protection capacity and livelihood support in countries of first asylum; providing more regular and safe ways for refugees to find safety through legal pathways; and addressing the root causes and drivers of refugee displacement.

In two separate incidents Monday and one Tuesday [8 and 9 January] in the Mediterranean, about 160 people including women and children were reported dead or missing.

Councillor Heather PHILLIPS Chair of the Standards Committee SBC



As you may be aware, I am a citizen investigative journalist contributing to the North Yorks Enquirer and providing intelligence to other media outlets from time to time the Private Eye magazine.

I am writing to you in the hope of obtaining an open response to certain questions concerning the activities of the Standards Committee at Scarborough Borough Council. An open response clears the air and obviates the need for deeper scrutiny.

Having recently been fortunate enough to have an interesting article on the subject of ethical Standards accepted for publication in the Enquirer, and the said article having reached, and resonated with, an unusually wide readership, I am anxious to give you an opportunity to present your views, as seen from your perspective as the Chair of the Standards Committee.

It would be helpful if you would take into account some of the comments and questions expressed to me by some of your fellow Councillors, which I will set forth now, for your consideration.

1) It has been suggested that Chairships of Committees are distributed not on merit, but rather as a reward to Councillors who have diligently and unquestioningly accepted the Conservative Group line, simultaneously maintaining an anodyne public profile. Such Councillors are sometimes referred to as foot soldiers.

THIS Is Socialism "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

How the ignorati can still argue for state controlled socialism beggars the imagination.  In fact all aspects of socialism as practiced consists of an incorrect approach to solving the problem presented by failed markets.  It makes sound sense that we provide universal social services but they must be paid for by a universal labor market tied in pricing to the monetized costs of those services.
What this implies is that we create a base market for a four hour shift in concert with local communities. This maintains maximum flexibility while opening the door for community investment in long term assets such as robust forests.

What is described here is command socialism which inevitably dies in a frenzy of corruption and currency destruction.

They are, in no particular order, communism, Marxism, and socialism.

Communism, as practiced by the Soviet Union, was ultimately responsible for its demise.

What if the pain is really in your head?  From this it appears to be exactly true in the majority of cases.  Thus virtually all the present protocols are either of no value at all to begin with and all bring additional risks.

What this means is that chronic pain must be approached completely differently and this is well worth investigating though a review of alternate resources.

Italy: Green Hill Is Not Over!! "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"


Received on 12.01.18:

July 18th, 2012

An historical day: Green Hill is closed by the authorities.

Before that date, a grass root campaign drove thousands of people to streets and demos and demonstrations against Marshall Bioresources, owner of Green Hill beagles farm and one of the biggest vivisection multinational companies in the world, and against any cage, any form of slavery and exploitation, and form of dominion.

The campaign lasted for more than two years. The thousands of activists that took part wrote some of the most inspiring and exciting pages of the total liberation movement history.

What happened clearly demonstrated how common people, with their own forces only, with no delegation to parties of big associations, could fight against and win over a giant of capitalism.

That day, 2639 beagles could exit those gates and escape from their fate.

But that day was far more that this. It was the day that it was clear to everyone how direct action and grassroot activism could break the wall of silence, show what lies beneath closed doors of labs and breeding farms. It was the day people realized to have the power to fight and set free anyone whose life is segregated in cages, prisons, laboratories.

It was the day capitalism was menaced by the mere force of pro...

#Beirut The Movie is Coming Out on April 13, Trailer Doesnt Look Promising "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Beirut, formerly titled High Wire Act is an American political thriller film coming out on April 13. The movie was directed by Brad Anderson and starring Jon Hamm (From Mad Men) and Rosamund Pike. The script comes courtesy of Tony Gilroy, who also wrote the Bourne trilogy and Michael Clayton.

The plot is about a U.S. diplomat (Jon Hamm) who flees Lebanon in 1972 after a tragic incident at his home. Ten years later, he is called back to war-torn Beirut by CIA operatives (Rosamund Pike) to negotiate for the life of a friend he left behind.

The plot sounds nice but the trailer doesnt look that promising. In fact, the movie is getting a lot of backlash for practically not having anything or anyone Lebanese in it. It was filmed in Morocco and none of the actors are Lebanese. In fact, I couldnt identify anything Beirut-related in the trailer and I didnt understand what they meant by this quote 2000 years of revenge, vendetta, murder. Welcome to Beirut during the trailer. What is that supposed to mean?

In all cases, its too early to judge the movie and I hope we will get the chance to watch it here. Check out the trailer:

Once again from the dungeons of the State, the belly of the beast. In first instance and FIES I write these words, isolated but not alone, because I know that our values are far stronger than these bars that I have in front of me, that our love for freedom is a thousand times more worthy than their hatred and that there is not a wall that can separate us from our own.

I believe in many things and two of these have always been that anti-fascist self-defence is the most legitimate struggle and that a State that promotes fascism, racism, homophobia and a long etcetera will ruthlessly attack those who defend themselves. After being insulted in a racist way, attacked from behind by a man holding a knife and following a tragic ending, the machine starts rolling, the State becomes strong and knows that a lie told a thousand times becomes truth, at least for the majority who need it.

The attacker becomes the attacked, they invent a ridiculous excuse for the aggression (the braces) that does not even appear in the police investigation, the knife disappears and they try to hide the fascist and racist links.

Newly discovered fossils show that moths and butterflies have been on the planet for at least 200 million years. Scientists found fossilised butterfly scales the size of a speck of dust inside ancient rock from Germany. The find pushes back the date for the origins of the Lepidoptera, one of the most prized and studied insect groups. Researchers say they can learn more about the conservation of butterflies and moths by studying their early evolution.

They used acid to dissolve ancient rocks, leaving behind small fragments, including "perfectly preserved" scales that covered the wings of early moths and butterflies. "We found the microscopic remains of these organisms in the form of these scales," said Dr Bas van de Schootbrugge from Utrecht University in the Netherlands.

Intriguingly, they show that some of the moths and butterflies belonged to a group still alive today that have long straw-like tongues for sucking up nectar.

#Q: The REAL PSYOP Exposed; SGT Report [video]

Its complicated, is right. That was my opening line before I even watched the video. Its complicated beyond belief and there is some really good dialogue coming out of the QAnon Phenomenon.

I like the cautious optimism approach. When things get so bad youre afraid to hope for anything good at all, thats an unhappy place to be.

I have great hopes for wonderful things that will be happening. I just dont like to see people attacking those who want more assurances that someone is who they say they are. There are varying degrees of caution and we each have to maintain a comfort level.

When special words and phrases are introduced to a conversation and not knowing those terms makes one an outsider even though they are a patriot and a dedicated Lightworker, it begins to sound like a cult. +++ How is that relevant?

Plain language would be preferable, but when there is no way to secure a communication portal, it can be tough to tell whos for real and whos a LARP. Some are wondering if it was the real QAnon who released the DEFCON 1 message, or an imposter. Some are wondering if Q and QAnon are the same entity.

Perhaps the QAnon Phenomenon is totally legitimate, or perhaps it isnt, but when the love affair with Q divides the patriots, we need to address it.

Sean does a good job of justifying why he is filled with optimism due to the actions he seesand hes absolutely right that Hillary Clinton had to be prevented from sitting on the throne at all costs or it would have been game over for America and Humanity in general. Ive claimed that more than once. Was it a miracle? Perhaps it was. Weve said enough prayers and we...

New Delhi: The ED today conducted searches at multiple premises linked to Karti Chidambaram, the son of Congress leader P. Chidambaram, in connection with its money laundering probe in the Aircel- Maxis case.

Official sources said the raids are being conducted in Delhi and Chennai since early morning.

The central probe agency, on December 1 last year, had conducted similar searches on the premises of a relative of Karti and others in this case.

The ED case pertains to the Foreign Investment Promotion Board (FIPB) approval granted in 2006 by the then finance minister P Chidambaram.

The agency had said it is investigating the circumstances of the said FIPB approval granted by the then finance minister (P Chidambaram).

The ED also alleged that Karti has disposed of a property in Gurgaon, which he had allegedly rented out to a multinational company to whom FDI approval had been granted in 2013.

It charged that Karti had also closed certain bank accounts and attempted to close other bank accounts in order to frustrate...


The Day Gandhi Began His Last Fast "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

For Gandhi, death was preferable to life if staying alive meant witnessing the destruction of the Hindu and Sikh faiths as well as Islam in India.

Gandhis final fast (January 13-18, 1948): On the 70th anniversary to mark this historic protest, The Wire recalls the politics and ideals Gandhi represented and sacrificed his life for.

Last month, winter came knocking on the doors of Delhis residents and it was pleasant to sit in the sun. I spent one such afternoon in the company of three young men. To say they were Indian would not suffice; they were Muslims. And, although it was an awkward question for a first meeting, I nevertheless asked them, What is the biggest worry for the Muslim youth of India?

There was a short pause before the reply came. Security, they said. It was not as though their reply came as a surprise to me, but even so it gave me a jolt. I was aware that if they had been Hindu youths, this question would not have fetched the response it did. Then they would have said educational opportunities, jobs. Had they been Dalit youths, the reply would have been equality, dignity. For Muslim youths, however, these concerns are secondary. Protection and security are their prime concerns.

To elucidate this point, one of the youngsters recounted the experience of his train journey from Mumbai to Delhi. The Gujarat elections were over an...

On January 12, the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) launched 31 satellites into various orbits. It included the Cartosat-2F, a reconnaissance satellite, and 30 smaller satellites, 28 of which were for foreign customers.

Shivanand Kanavi spoke to A.S. Kiran Kumar, the chairman of ISRO, for The Wire on reconnaissance, micro- and nano-satellites, satellite-guided aviation, Indias own GPS and Kumars journey in space applications. Kumar will retire from his position on January 15 and will be succeeded by K. Sivan.

The interview has been edited for clarity.

Shivanand Kanavi: In Cartosat, are there any specialised cameras?

Kiran Kumar: Basically, the cameras are the same. The difference is, here, for generating a third dimension, you need two images from different viewing angles. Second, accuracy is needed for retrieving the height information so you need good quality images. Otherwise cartography and very-high-resolution imaging are basically the same.

Chicago considering equipping police with anti-texting tools "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Chicago considering equipping police with anti-texting tools | 11 Jan 2018 | Chicago may become the first city in the U.S. to arm its police officers with devices that will tell them immediately if motorists were texting when they got into a traffic accident. After hearing from a father whose son was killed in a traffic accident in which the driver was texting, as well as from a company that developed a prototype of the so-called "Textalyzer," the City Council's public safety committee voted Thursday to request that the police department study the hand-held devices. The vote sends the issue to the full council, which is all but certain to approve the resolution next week..."One thing that is troubling is that it's not clear what limitations there are on the information gathered," said Ed Yohnka, spokesman for the ACLU of Illinois told The Associated Press this week. Another question is whether the device is even necessary because there are ways for authorities to determine if a motorist was texting at the time of an accident.


Nigerian-British Actress Threatens President Trump With Witchcraft: You Are Not Safe "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Tony Award winning Nigerian-British actress Cynthia Erivo used her Verified Blue Check Mark Twitter account to post a threatening message to President Donald Trump on Friday, invoking Juju, voodoo and magic, warning Trump he is not safe. The threat was made in response to alleged comments by Trump in an Oval Office meeting with lawmakers about immigration in which he referred to African nations as s***hole countries. Trump denies he used that word but acknowledges using tough language.

Cynthia Erivo, image via Twitter avatar.

Erivo used a few Pidgin words in her threat to Trump:

I hope all the Africans in this world call on their ancestors. See you forgot. Juju, voodoo, magic. Dont worry Donald, we are the wrong ones. You are not safe because you are on another continent. Biko do yourself a favor, take a break. Wahala de come for you oh.

According to online dictionaries, Wahala means troubles and Biko means please.,

Erivo responded to her critics (many of whom were bothered by her use of Pidgin), claiming to be a believer in Jesus Christ and that she is a Nigerian-Brit currently living in the U.S.


Dream Psychology: How to Analyze Your Dreams to Find the Meaning Within "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Our dreams provide us with much more insight than we realize. They are a look into our subconscious and something a lot of people do not get to experience.

When it comes to analyzing your dreams you dont have to work as hard as you might think. Below you will find a list of things that will help you figure out the meanings behind your dreams and also how to better understand yourself on a deeper level. Dream interpretation can do more than we think.

1. Write down everything as soon as you wake up.

It is important to get everything out while you still remember it. Write down everything, all the small details. It all matters and the more you remember the more you can interpret.

2. Look at your dream from an outside perspective, how did you feel in the dream?

Read your dream as if it is not your own one good time. Assess the emotions and whatnot associated with the dream and yourself. Get to know the mood of the dream and what is really happening.

3. Determine whether or not the dream is a real-life situation or a fantasy.

Is this dream an experience of some kind you have had before or is there more to it than that? What is going on within the dream? Is what has happened in the dream something you would want to happen in real life.

4. Recognize patterns within your dreams.

Really think about everything. What animals or other things of the sort do you keep noticing? Is there some kind of pattern within one dream or from one dream to the next? What things stand out to you?

5. Decide what your dream(s) mean for you.

Now that you have gone over everything it is up to you to decide what your dream or dreams mean for you. While there are tons of books and things out there about what different things in a dream may mean at the end of the day your dreams were made for you specifically. You will know what they mean as the universe sees fit.

Your dreams are special and designed specifically for you. They are working to tell you something. Our dreams could mean anything from we need to get over the past to there is something unsavory coming in our future. Dont let anyone tell you what your dreams mean, only you know. Please check out the video below for more information on this.
